A mute girl’s monologue

a film by Khady Sylla & Charlie Van Damme
Length 45'
Format mini-DV
Language Fr



It's Amy's life. At the nearest of the ordinary servitude she suffers from her bosses. In the intimacy of her forced retirement in the village, where she will give birth to her daughter. Some kind of hope and a deadlock, all at once. Echoing this trajectory, other maids' words, washerwomen's laments, the resistance of women from the slums of street 11, in the medina. The anger of the slammer Fatim Poulo Sy.
