Films produced for Ovacome

During lockdown, we were delighted to have been approached by Ovacome – The Ovarian Cancer Support Charity, who asked us to produce a series of short films to raise awareness of ovarian cancer.

Ovarian cancer unfortunately affects women from all communities, and so these films were made for people whose first or preferred language isn’t English. We made four films, spoken in Bengali, Gujarati, Punjabi and Urdu, enabling women from South Asian communities to overcome language barriers in order to seek support. The films were all shared online.
