Suspended Wives

Merieme Addou  |  AFAC Documentary Program  |  2016  |  Morocco
The film follows three women who were abandoned by their husbands- Ghita, Latifa, and Karima- and their long fight for divorce. After waiting for years, they decide to turn to the courts of their regions. The procedure proves to be not only a long but also an absurd one as the women have to prove first that their husbands are absent.
