In a remote lake of Uganda, girls who were getting pregnant before marriage were abandoned on the tiny island of Akampene, aka Punishment Island. Here most died, but some were saved by men in search of free brides.
Laura Cini, an Italian filmmaker, went to the area on 2011 to look for survivors. The mission was successful and now she completed a hour documentary on the story which was supported by crowdfunders and the Italian Ministry of Culture. Premiering soon.
