Sacred Water

Finished - 52 Minutes

I'm going to tell you a story coming from the most intimate of hiding places...


Guided by Vestine, an extravagant star of radio nights, the film discovers Rwandan sexuality in search of the water that gushes out the female body. “Sacred Water” reveals with humor and spontaneity the mystery of female bliss. Did the Rwandans inherit another way of lovemaking, where female pleasure would be central ?

With all the lightness but also seriousness the subject requires, the film takes us to a modern Africa and its founding myths, and reflects our view about sex and pleasure in the Western World.
