Description

An award winning work from acclaimed documentary filmmaker Kim Longinotto (The Day I Will Never Forget, Divorce Iranian Style) and co-director Florence Ayisi, Sisters in Law is an uplifting and enlightening slice of life, focusing on justice in the Muslim village of Kumba Town, Cameroon.

The town is overseen by the progressive female partnership of prosecutor Vera Ngassa and court president Beatrice Ntuba, who together help women to speak out and fight back against assumptions of patriarchal privilege in modern-day Africa. In signature style, Longinotto's unobtrusive camera captures an abundance of colourful characters, allowing their powerful stories to unfold effortlessly, without the need for narration. The cases include Sonita, a young girl who accuses a neighbour of rape; Manka a six-year old who has been beaten with a coat-hanger; and Amina, a wife seeking divorce from her abusive husband. All three are given the sort of support that extends beyond legal advice and becomes a crucial act of empowerment.

A warm, witty and involving portrait of two remarkable characters and an example of grassroots action at its most effective, Sisters in Law is that rare thing - a film that makes you believe things might actually get better rather than worse.
