Senegal, Rwanda, Mozambique, Kenya, Ivory Coast and Burundi are the countries of origin of women who, in Mohammed Soudani’s film work, represent the symbol of the rebirth of a continent torn apart by genocide, hunger and war. Society’s revenge is not a story of men, but of women in the vanguard who, despite pressure, obstacles and increasingly difficult challenges, recount their success in the continent’s failed history of the last 70 years.
