Heres a thought, in certain regions nearby freedom fighters or rebels in the jungles (depends on the side of the fence you sit on) are both women and men. Lets just say one of the women combatant gets pregnant and decides to hang up the AK47 and becomes a FDW.

Whats funny is the woman carrying the NS man back pack and doing the ironing could have more actual combat experience than all the NS men put together? Now that would make a story.

Hi, I don't know how much experience you have with filming a documentary but you need absolute help if you want to reach your goals. I am a professional film maker by myself and if you need any help, let me know. Your intentions are good but it's not going the right direction. PM me and maybe I can help you as I know a lot of this subject...

DeGado, is that a lot about the subject of filming or the filming of subject?

:P :lol:

Unfortunately, like you, I found out my errors in marriages through hindsight as well. I've been divorced twice but I've been married to a local here for the past 29 years.

That's a long time 29 years, I hope with my next relationship it will be the same or longer. I know what I want now and maybe found it...

some suggestions..to help you get those interviews.
ensure their privacy, go through proper channels like if you are looking for abused maids talk to HOME and when you interview them make sure there is a representative present who can ensure their rights arent taken for granted.

Offer them money to compensate for the time they spend in your interview. Mask their identities by blurring their faces, putting them in dark, changing their voice.
