DAKAR: The Other Woman (L’Autre Femme)
Dir. Marie KA
Senegal 2013. 12min. Colour. French with English subtitles.
A brave film set in the secret world of multiple spouse households. Madeleine, a housewife in her fifties, discovers her true self when she has to welcome her husband’s young second wife to their home. The relationship between these two women defies conventional norms. Their potent intimacy has the potential to blow apart a stable domestic situation and to rewrite the story of both their lives. A bold, beautifully acted piece, sensitively filmed against the backdrop of a colourful and beguiling Dakar.
