THE FRUIT-FREE TREE

by Elhadj Aicha Macky

NIGER, France - 2016 - 52 MINUTES

synopsis

Married and childless, Aïcha finds herself in an “extraordinary” situation in her country. But in Niger like everywhere in the world, there are infertility problems. Based on her personal story, addressing her questions to her mother who died in childbirth, the director delicately explores the hidden sufferings of women and breaks taboos. The spectator thus walks alongside Aïcha in Niger, a woman among mothers.
