Lingui, The Sacred Bonds

  •   Mahamat-Saleh Haroun
  •   Chad, France, Germany, Belgium

In this sensitive, affecting drama from celebrated African filmmaker Mahamet-Saleh Haroun (The Screaming Man, Grigris), single mother Amina (Achouackh Abakar Souleymane) becomes furious when she learns that her teenage daughter Maria (Rihane Khalil Alio) is pregnant. But as she reflects on her own past and reconsiders the social norms that have dictated so much of her life, Amina resolves to do what she can to come to Maria’s aid and help her secure an abortion, even though the medical procedure violates national and religious laws. Shot in Chad’s capital N’Djamena, Lingui is a raw, honest celebration of the power and beauty of women working in solidarity.
