Lingui, The Sacred Bonds

On the outskirts of the capital of Chad, determined single mother Amina works tirelessly to provide for herself and her fifteen-year-old daughter Maria. When Amina discovers Maria is pregnant and doesn’t want a child, the two women begin to seek out an abortion that’s condemned by both religion and law. Fighting to procure this simple yet inaccessible procedure, they must navigate a patriarchal network of doctors, relatives, and neighbours. In the process, mother and daughter forge a connection stronger than any they’ve ever known in this honest, poignant, and stunning vision of female solidarity from celebrated director Mahamat-Saleh Haroun.
