This Friday we are going to screen the fourth film of the female perspectives theme. To conclude the series in a hopeful note, we have chosen La Source des Femmes. You can find the other relevant suggestions we received in the previous entry.
Also, notice the time change. For this week only, the screening has been moved one hour later from the usual time.
La Source des Femmes, France, 2011
Directed by Radu Mihaileanu
The story takes place in current times, in a small village somewhere between North Africa and the Middle East. The women fetch water from a mountaintop spring in the blazing sun. They’ve done that since the beginning of time. Leila, a young bride, urges the women to launch a love strike: no more cuddling, no more sex until the men run water into the village.
