10x10 is wheels down in Northern Ethiopia on our first official film production trip. It’s been exactly one year since we first visited Ethiopia to find a girl to represent her country in our film.

With the brilliant writing of Maaza Mengiste as our guide, we’re out to film the story of Azmera, a girl who at the age of just 13, stood up to tradition—and her own mother—and refused to be married off.

Director Richard Robbins checks in today from the road…literally:

As on our previous trips to Ethiopia, we’re grateful to be hosted by the good people of World Vision, a our NGO partner working hard in Ethiopia and around the world to educate girls. You can help World Vision make education a reality for girls like Azmera with a donation today.
