Cameroon / UK 2005 • Directed by Kim Longinotto, Florence Ayisi • Documentary • 104 minutes
A totally fascinating - often hilarious - look at the work of one small courthouse in south-west Cameroon. The two women at the heart of the documentary, the State Counsel and Court President, dispense wisdom, wisecracks and justice in fair measure. The victims of crime - an abused child, a woman daring to accuse a man of rape, and another trying to end a brutal marriage in a society where divorce is taboo - are handled with fierce compassion. You’ll feel like cheering when justice is served.
