Description

Effortlessly evocative?and?stunning in its weighted use of silence and reserved perspective, Lingui, The Sacred Bonds is an uplifting tale of determination and bravery. Single mother Amina lives on the outskirts of Chad’s?capital with her 15-year-old daughter Maria, eking out a meagre wage selling stoves?she makes from scrap metal. When she discovers Maria has been expelled from school for being pregnant and wants an abortion, her already fragile world looks set to collapse. In a society where abortion is condemned by religion, Amina finds herself facing a battle that seems lost before it’s even begun. Lingui describes the idea of community and people looking out for each other. In his latest film Chadian cinema pioneer Mahamat-Saleh Haroun?takes us into the hidden lives of women and the often-secret networks they weave to survive. Screening with short film Two Sands.
