God Is Not Working on Sunday, Eh! (2014)
1h 22min · Documentary, News · 1 January 2014
Through an intimate, long-term observing portrait God is not working on Sunday, eh! narrates about Rwanda of today and its women, standing for a new generation of leaders on the African continent; it narrates about the transformation process from shock-torpor to activism and political participation. The films follows three women-activists from self-empowerment training to confront patriarchal social structures; to the rural area, where the victims are forced to live again shoulder on shoulder with their perpetrators, and where women get organized to break the taboo and speak out loud what they demand. Florida, Godel and Beat pursue their visions determined and self-confident. History is dividing them but the women are struggling for a common goal: reconciliation, equal rights and political and economical power for women.
