Description

Trailer for the documentary Sisters in Law.

In Kumba, time seems to have come to a standstill. Women are the inalienable possession of their husband, daughters are traded for a small amount of money and a pig. Domestic violence is widespread, yet divorces remain rare. It is under these difficult circumstances that female magistrates Bam en Ngassa have to render justice. Both ladies possess enough personality, force of character and humor to relieve the fate of the women of Kumba. Divorces are imposed, if necessary, and obstinate men are unambiguously given to understand that the 21st century has started. The sisters can also be merciless on indicted women, however, especially when it comes to child abuse.
