Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Twelve years in the making, “Visages de Femmes” is a wonderfully unpredictable and creative look at the financial, sexual and emotional emancipation of African women. The film is a series of episodes linked by a chorus featuring traditional singing and dancing. Ecare’s achievement is to create a visual feast which owes little to colonial models of cinema.
