Part of Film 2019 series FilmAfrica
Directed by Aïcha Macky | 2016

Aïcha Macky’s fearlessly personal documentary breaks the silence on a taboo topic in Nigerien society: the ostracism faced by married women who don’t or can’t have children. Speaking out about her own struggles with infertility—which in Niger is always attributed to women, never men—Macky works to shatter the stigma surrounding childlessness and offer hope to other women suffering in silence.
