#MeToo Movement is not just about the movie industry in Hollywood, California. Women have been taken advantage of for centuries in countries around the world. Long before Hollywood’s dirty secrets were revealed, Burkina Faso’s Director and Writer Apolline Traore produced, FRONTIÈRES a feature film about four women, five countries in seven days, who endure injustices from sexual assault, harassment, and extortion from men and governments who control the borders that they must cross to make a living trading goods. FRONTIÈRES is an intense look at what happens on the road but stays on the road for women like the four featured in the film. Staying true to her roots, Traore shot her film entirely on the locations depicted in the storyline from Burkina Faso, Senegal to Nigeria.
