To Beijing and Back

Duration: 35:00 minutes

This documentary filmed a group of women before, during and after the UN Women’s Conference in Beijing and sought to look at their expectations and hopes and how they felt on their return – did it live up to their expectations? This documentary was made in association with the National Council for Development Education.

To Beijing and Back also inspired filmmakers Anne Daly and Ronan Tynan to make Are We So Different to find out if the UN Beijing Conference made any difference to African women.
