La source des femmes

Directed by Radu Mihaileanu, Produced by Elzevir Films and Oï Oï Oï Productions

With Leila Bekhti, Hafsia Herzi, Hiam Abbass, Saleh Bakri, Biyouna

Beautiful 20-year-old Leila sets off from a small village with a group of women to fetch water from a source high up in the mountains. The route is long, steep and treacherous. A friend of Leila’s who’s five months pregnant takes a bad fall and loses her unborn child. It’s not the first time this has happened…a woman here is cursed.

Outraged, Leila urges the women to go on a love strike—no more affection

, no more sex—and hold out until the men agree to start fetching the village water themselves…
