Ciné-Club : L'Arbre sans fruit

Mai 17 - "L'Arbre sans fruit"

Theme: Women's Rights, Africa

Join us for an enlightening cinematic experience at our next Ciné-Club on May 24th at 7pm, featuring the thought-provoking film "L'arbe sans fruit"

Film Details: Single and childless, Aicha strikes an original feminine figure in Nigerian society, which promotes procreation and womanhood through marital status. Aicha's originality becomes more conspicuous when she takes up a camera to confront this controlling society and makes her condition the subject of her film. Far from being a personal complaint or autofiction, the young Nigerian filmmaker questions the place of women in her country by letting them speak out. Through personal and family conversations, voices and stories emerge that paint a moving and appalling picture of the off-screen social world. Macky gently lands a muffled but hard-hitting punch to religious and traditional consciences, all while respecting those she films.
