Summary
The red-walled clay city of Oualata, on the far edge of the Mauritanian desert, provides the atmospheric setting of Katy Lena Ndiaye's stereotype-shattering portrait of femininity and sexuality in the Sahara. Three independent women speak directly to the camera about their experiences as brides, wives, and divorcees, and about the often tricky relationship between men and women in a society seemingly dominated by tradition and masculine rule. "When they stop loving me, it's time to go," declares one. The women's art--intricate designs etched onto the town's walls and doors--lends a further flavor to this film's fresh look at female empowerment and expression in one of Africa's most remote, beautiful regions
