Sacred Water

12 July, 2018

Runtime: 56′

Synopsis

Guided by Vestine, an extravagant star of radio nights, the film discovers Rwandan sexuality and reveals with humor and spontaneity the mystery of female ejaculation. Sacred Water confronts the western viewer with its own intimacy and immerses you into a modern Rwanda rediscovering its heritage in the most secret way: female pleasure. Having a satisfying and safe sex life, the capacity to reproduce and the freedom to decide, if, when and how often to do so, is also at the core of good sexual and reproductive health. To maintain one’s sexual and reproductive health, people need access to accurate information and the safe, effective, affordable and acceptable contraception method of their choice. Family planning is a human right – the theme of this year’s World Population Day. It is also inextricably linked to sexual and reproductive health, gender equality and women’s empowerment and a key factor in reducing poverty.**
