About the Event
Appoline Traoré’s gripping story of struggle and survival is set in the Sahal. Sira a strong and confident young nomad Fulani woman is on the way to her marriage when her family are attacked by Islamist terrorists with tragic results. The story of her survival, in which the female veil becomes an instrument of resistance represents a feminist counterpoint to current reporting from the region. Set against the harsh and mesmerising desert backdrop, Nassifatou Cissé’s performance as Sira is compelling and shocking.
