Short film - Meena
The documentary ‘Meena’ is about the very real problem of suicide, and how it affects young women in Nepal. “According to a report published by the Family Health Division (Ministry of Health and Population), suicide is the leading cause of death among women of reproductive age in Nepal.” This is a hugely problematic, complex and sensitive issue, which has very little voice.
