The Wedding Ring Trailer (2017)
Trailer for The Wedding Ring, which screened at the San Francisco International Film Festival.
After attending college in Europe, Tiyaa (Magaajyia Silberfeld, the daughter of director Rahmatou Keïta) returns to Niger, but lingering romantic daydreams about the handsome young man she left behind disrupt her reintegration into village life. According to custom, women are not supposed to have such thoughts, let alone be sexual outside of marriage. As Tiyaa grapples with her conflicted feelings, her best friend takes her to a sage who advises her to take part in a ceremony at the new moon that will help clarify things. While she waits out the changing lunar phases, Tiyaa interacts with a variety of women who also challenge traditional norms, and Keïta employs a fresh approach to portray their complicated lives.
