Plan UK – The Lesson




The Lesson
Plan UK

As part of a new push for Plan UK’s flagship Because I am a Girl campaign, we were commissioned to create and produce a campaign which included an impact film to draw attention to the urgent issue of school-related gender-based violence, which affects 246 million children globally, most of them girls.

Having worked with Plan UK previously on our award winning #FGMrose campaign we were determined to again create a film that did not shy away from its serious subject matter.

Our efforts took us to Kenya, Cambodia and the United Kingdom where we produced The Lesson, a cinematic impact film following the damaging experiences of three girls, separated by continents, yet each a victim of violence at school.

The result is a confronting portrayal of the many forms of gender-based violence girls face at schools, all around the world.
