For Sofia, a young woman who is trying to study medicine in Mozambique, the obstacles extend far beyond the distractions of her boyfriend and family. A moment of weakness or an error in judgment could cost her a place at the university—an irretrievable loss in a country with so few opportunities for women. Director João Luis Sol de Carvalho dedicates this drama to the courage of young women who continue to strive against the odds, proving the value of female education in a land where it is perceived that sending a girl to school is like "watering another man's garden". ANOTHER MAN'S GARDEN (O JARDIN DO OUTRO HOMEM) is presented in Portuguese with English subtitles. This film is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative.
