Mourir à Tue-Tête Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Rape, the practice of female genital mutilation in Africa, and the legal system in most countries which shames rape victims rather than their abusers, are the subjects of this drama. In the story, a woman is making a film about the rape of a single woman but is also interviewing a series of rape victims. As she edits her film, she and her assistant discuss it. All of the rapists are symbolically united in one man's portrait, as enacted by [[Performer~P33379~Germain Houde~germainhoude]]. Real-life documentation is intermingled with reenactments and symbolic scenes to make this an extraordinarily harrowing viewing experience. The main character is unable to deal with the aftermath of her victimization, and she eventually commits suicide. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
