A WALK TO BEAUTIFUL

Executive produced by Steven Engel and Helen Diana (“Heidi”) Reavis, A Walk to Beautiful tells the story of five women in Ethiopia suffering from a devastating childbirth injury called obstetric fistula. Rejected by their husbands and ostracized by their communities, these women are left to spend the rest of their lives in loneliness and shame.

 

We follow each of these women on their journey to a special hospital in Addis Ababa where they find solace for the first time in years, and we stay with them as their lives begin to change. Through the intimate experiences all five share, we are no longer in the heart of Africa; we are in the hearts of these women. The trials they endure and their attempts to rebuild their lives tell a universal story of hope, courage, and transformation.

 

A Walk to Beautiful was selected for numerous film festivals around the world, won an Emmy Award, and was named best documentary of the year by the International Documentary Association.

"A Walk to Beautiful will leave you speechless two times over — first with despair, then with joy. Neither unmentionable subject matter nor nonexistent commercial prospects can keep this documentary from having a power over your heart that is unparalleled."

"The incredible cinematography makes A Walk to Beautiful almost like a poem; there is a tenderness on display that seems to emanate from the camera."

"Upbeat and life-affirming"
