Performing: Kim Longinotto

Public prosecutor Beatrice and lawyer Vera are not afraid of any skeletons in the closets of Cameroonian households. A unique film mapping strong women in the fight against domestic violence. The town of Kumba in Southeast Cameroon: old orders, original customs, Muslim rights, unchanging relationships. The course of urban life is watched in the courtroom by two stubborn, ferocious women – Beatrice and Vera. Their most common cases deal with domestic violence against children and women. The main characters include a stern judge as well as representatives of women’s education, reinforcing their courage to express themselves and fight against injustice. The stark and raw style of Kim Longinotto’s camera underscores the opposition to domestic violence and censures the level of indifference and the sentences traversing the air in the courtroom.
