To Keep a Promise seeks to show the universal story of maternal and child health. Using from footage from over a dozen countries, the film attempts to convey the complexities and interventions that lead to successes in maternal and child health. The short video follows the path to health, independence, and prosperity through one universal ‘character,’ compiled of women and children around the globe.
The film deliberately strays away from the numbers and academic studies and instead focuses on the quiet, anxious, loving, fearful, or endearing moments of women and children around the globe. The shots are intentionally unvarnished, sometimes raw, and give viewers a sense of peering into the lives of families around the globe.
