Sisters in Law (Cameroon; 2005) directed by Florence Ayisi and Kim Longinotto; in English, Pidgin and Hausa with English subtitles.

In the little town of Kumba, Cameroon, there have been no convictions in spousal abuse cases for 17 years. But State Prosecutor Vera Ngassa and Court President Beatrice Ntuba are determined to change that, as they help women and girls to fight cases of battering, despite pressures from family and their community to remain silent.

Presented by Professor Ousseina Alidou, Department of African, Middle Eastern and South Asian Languages and Literatures
