The Island of Women

Ja, a young woman from Cabral, never went elsewhere in “search her life” like so many others Cape Verdeans do. She never left her village. Ja decides to travel around her island, in order to meet women who, like her, are engaged in the amazing bodily practice of batuke. In the course of her journey, we discover the women who stay behind and who overcome together, through the artistic expression of batuke, the harshness and the acuity of separation. **(Please note: this program will be in English)
