BLACK VIRGIN / VIRGEN NEGRA

SYNOPSIS: "Black Virgin", a precious treasure. In Mozambique, the sexual life of many women begins when they are forced to marry at the age of 10. Or with sexual abuse in schools. Traditional beliefs like AIDS cures having sexual intercourse with a virgin. Later on, they will face too consecutive pregnancies and polygamy: second, third, fourth wife of their husband. Traditional abortions made with roots, too often cause maternal death. And the end of sexuality arrives at the age of 45.

 

Daily lives told by Linda, Aicha, Gwyneth, Luisa and Emilia. We talk about sex. And we see it. "Black Virgin" shows an intimate scene of sex between a man and a woman. Without any taboo.
