The Fruitless Tree

The Fruitless Tree

The director, a married woman without children, deals with the issue of infertility in the country of Niger, by sharing stories of stigmatized wives, husbands who refuse to be tested (or who abandon the women and take up with other wives.) The project was inspired by the death of the director's own mother in childbirth.

This film gave me everything I love in movie, a powerful story and more than enough edge-of-your-seat action sequences.
