BELGIUM - RWANDA 55 MIN
Guided by Vestine, an extravagant star of radio nights, the film explores Rwandan sexuality in search of the water that gushes out of the female body and reveals with humor and spontaneity the mystery of female ejaculation. Sacred Water confronts the Western viewer with its own intimacy and immerses them into a modern Rwanda, rediscovering its heritage in the most secret way: female pleasure. Α respectful ode to female pleasure, with a sense of humor and not a trace of embarrassment.
