Ann Arbor, Michigan

Master Director Ousmane Sembene's enthralling and exhilarating portrayal of a courageous woman, one of the wives of a village tribesman, who offers protection to four young girls escaping the ancient African ceremony of female circumcision. Visually gorgeous, this powerful, compassionate and often surprisingly humorous film deals with issues of gender, power, custom and change.
