Goat Tree Productions is a film production company composed of two young filmmakers/journalists, Zoe Hamilton and Anne Munger who are committed to examining complex social issues through innovative storytelling. Goat Tree utilizes both journalism and film to focus on social justice issues, the stories of women, and sharing the voices that don't get the attention they should.
Goat Tree was founded in 2014, after Zoe and Anne completed their first short, "Nasbandi," which explored issues of female sterilization in rural India. The short premiered at the 2015 SR Film Festival in NYC, with additional screenings at the 2015 Middlebury New Filmmaker's Festival, the 2016 Culture Unplugged Film Festival, the London School of Economics, and Northwestern University. Zoe and Anne also wrote a series of accompanying articles while working on "Nasbandi," which have been published in Al Jazeera and Quartz.
Goat Tree is currently in pre-production for a feature-length version of Nasbandi, which will begin production in late fall of 2016.
"Zoe and Anne's work shines light on the need for greater education of women's reproductive health choices throughout the developing world. Access to safe, affordable birth control options is a pivotal step in advancing women's global economic freedom."
