        Our Voices has been produced as part of International Alert's project Making Women's Voices Heard in Peacebuilding and Reconciliation in Burundi. The film presents the views of Burundian women about what is needed to foster reconciliation and growth in their communities and their country, which emerged from 12 years of civil war in 2005. During Burundi's conflict, over 300,000 people lost their lives and more than 1 million Burundians were forced to flee their homes. Today, significant hurdles to long-term peace remain. The majority of Burundians, and women in particular, have little scope to participate in the political process. Despite improvements in security, the population has not yet felt significant economic peace dividends; 81% of Burundi's population continues to live below the international poverty line of $1.25 a day. Through 2010-11 International Alert and partners gathered the perspectives of Burundi's women their priorities, and channelled these to the government. This film presents these opinions and recommendations and asks that women's voices continue to be heard. Alert has been working in Burundi since 1995. Making Women's Voices Heard is carried out in partnership with Dushirehamwe, Réseau Femmes et Paix, the Association des Femmes Rapatriées du Burundi, and the Collectif des Associations et ONG Féminines du Burundi. The project is funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Burundi is launching its new Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSPII) in 2012, which sets the scene for development efforts in Burundi for the coming five years. Through 2010-11 International Alert and partners gathered the perspectives of Burundi's women their priorities, and channelled these to the government for inclusion in the PRSPII.

            History is usually written by the winners. Not so the Civil war. This year is the 150th anniversary of the United States Colored Troops. But the history of them has almost been erased. The South is filled with monuments over a Southern commander, a slave trader, that went on to lead Ku Klux Klan. But very few celebrate the former slaves, that played a key role in keeping the US. ”Too many in the South are refusing to accept that we lost the war. And that we should have lost. I was born and raised here and I am taking back history from them”, says filmmaker Kent Moorhead. ”No more kids should be raised with a ”Gone-with-the-wind-view, of our history”. Rather die free, looks deeper into two battles in Mississippi, between a slave trader and former slaves. And it takes a bigger look at the black men and women, who risked all, to be free.
