When it comes to reflect our society, we know cinema can do it in an excellent way, and this movie is a great example of that. Now more than ever we are becoming aware of women's historical condition of oppression, and Anadu's film it's a major contribution to enlarge the knowledge about patriarchal societies in our world.
Nigeria has one of the most prolific film industries yet very little Nigerian film makes it to North American shores. If this excellent film is any indication we are missing out on some quite amazing film. Anadu's debut film looks at the role of women in a modern Nigeria still victim of heritage, sex and religion. A seemingly modern woman is desperate to produce a male heir to keep her family; at near any cost.
Excelente semblanza sobre los dilemas del fanatismo y el "deber ser" aprendido culturalmente dentro de una sociedad patriarcal y mezquina que solo ve valor en la figura de la mujer cuando se reproduce y engendra a un varón. Esa tradición amarga que convierte a la mujer en objeto y la orilla a realizar hasta los actos menos propios de su naturaleza con tal de no ser condenada por su propia raza.
