Join us for this screening of The Two Faces of a Bamiléké Woman, directed by Rosine Mfetgo Mbakam and selected by Miranda Mungai.
The autobiographical film tells the story of Rosine Mfetgo Mbakam, a young woman from Cameroon who returns home after living in Europe. It follows her reunion with her mother and her search for the hidden voices of the women in her community.
After living abroad for seven years, marrying a European and giving birth to a son, Rosine journeys to Cameroon to better understand her past.
The film traces personal memories of the war against French colonisers, the effects of arranged marriage and the complex daily life of a Cameroonian woman.
