The Eternal Night of Twelve Moons

La Eterna Noche de las Doce Lunas

Directed by Priscila Padilla
Colombia, 2013


On the Guajira peninsula the old traditions of the indigenous Wayuu still hold sway. As soon as they begin menstruating, young women have to go and spend a year in a simple hut where only a few women are allowed to visit them. Pili is 12 years old when she decides to follow this custom.
