October 3: La Source des Femmes (The Source) (2011)
Discussant: Dr. Rose Marie Kuhn
*Film screening at 5 p.m.
In a small village somewhere “between North Africa and the Middle East”, it has always been a woman’s chore to fetch water from the “source”, or spring, at the top of the mountain. This arduous task causes several pregnant women to fall and miscarry while hauling their heavy pails of water back to the village. Leila, a young bride, urges the village women to action: no more hugs, love, and sex until the men do their part and bear the painful task of fetching water from the spring back to their village. This whimsical and, at times, heartbreaking Belgian-Moroccan-French comedy directed by Romanian-born French filmmaker Radu Mihaileanu was selected for screening at the 2011 Festival of Cannes. 124 minutes. In Arabic with English subtitles. Trailer in English: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UwanQtCJGeM
