“The People v. Aissatou Ba” (Immigrant Housekeeper Picks Up Pieces Of Her Life As Assaulter Walks Free)

"The People v. Aissatou Ba" (Immigrant Housekeeper Picks Up Pieces Of Her Life As Assaulter Walks Free)

A fundraising effort is underway for this project from NY-based filmmaker Iquo B. Essien. She only has 10 days left in the campaign to reach her $12,000 goal, so you’re encouraged to act now if you deem the project worthy of your contribution.

As detailed on the project’s IndieGoGo page, The People v. Aissatou Bais a film about an African immigrant housekeeper moving on with her life after the case against the man who assaulted her is dismissed. The film depicts the impact of sexual assault, the judicial system, and the media on a woman’s life, in a universal story of faith, hope, and courage against all odds… Inspired by the New York v. Strauss-Kahn case, the film asks the question: What price does Aissatou pay for telling the truth?

Watch the pitch video below, and then head over to IndieGoGo to make your contribution – anywhere from as little as $5 to as high as $1,000. Click HERE for the project’s fundraising page on IndieGoGo:
