Sisters in Law

Dir: Florence, Kim Ayisi, Longinoto

Cameroon, UK


105 mins


Winner of the Grierson Award and screened to acclaim at festivals around the world, Sisters in Law is a terrific documentary from internationally celebrated filmmaker Kim Longinotto (The Day I Will Never Forget, Divorce, Iranian Style) and Florence Ayisi.

The film is a perceptive and ultimately very moving examination of two women at the forefront of Cameroon’s legal system. With passion and wisdom, Vera Ngassa (State Prosecutor) and Beatrice Ntuba (Court President) fight to bring about social change in the small town of Kumba.

A formidable and progressively minded duo, they cut through assumed male privilege and local pressures to exact justice and defend the rights of women and children.

Sisters in Law is a warm, witty and involving portrait of two remarkable characters determined to make a difference.
