filmmaker's note
Beerato: a little known area of the world isÉ a small area with wide open expanses in wind swept Somaliland. This is a short -- an episode of a feature length project we would like to make. We hope that our mesmerizing observation will bring a new perspective to how we look at the lives of ordinary women living in an extraordinary (to western eyes) place.
