Directed by Aïcha Macky | 2016
Aïcha Macky’s fearlessly personal documentary breaks the silence on a taboo topic in Nigerian 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 Nigeria is always attributed to women, never men—Macky works to shatter the stigma surrounding childlessness and offer hope to other women suffering in silence.
