Books Info:

Second Face free pdf "Second Face: Berida's Lives" follows Berida Ndambuki, a 62-year-old dried staples trader, to her work at Gikomba Market in Nairobi and to her home at Kathonzweni in Ukambani in central Kenya. The portrait presented is complex - we see her involvement in women's groups, her friendships and family, the high burden of women's rural labour as well as the tribulations of live in Nairobi. Although a personal journey, the video shows the living conditions of a large number of Kenyan women. It traces social and economic change, environmental degradation and reconstruction, class differences within families and villages, the gender division of labour, women's work, urban and rural contrasts, addiction, care for the aged, and marital and family relationships. Berida's own voice structures "Second Face". The video employs a natural soundtrack, with some subtitles and audio translation. Filmed on location in Kenya in colour. Produced and directed by Claire Robertson, secondary author and editor of "We Only Come Here to Struggle".
