For the Children of the Mountain screening I wore these Bebe pumps to which I added socks for a touch of whimsy. And felt like a million and one dollars . The extra dollar  is a direct result of this happy pairing which not only looks chic but is very fashion forward. This film won the New Narrative Director  award at the Tribeca film  festival https://tribecafilm.com/festival/.  The film was directed by Priscilla Anany and is a narrative that  follows a young woman who gives birth to a child  suffering from a facial deformity – cleft lip and Down’s syndrome . The mother quickly becomes the victim of cruelty and superstition in her Ghanaian community following the birth of her son.  She and her child are rejected and discarded by her lover and she is convinced she suffer from a “dirty womb” . She feels some what responsible for the fate of her child- and so embarks on a journey to various healing  sources to heal her son and establish a future for herself and her son.
