Women's Issues / 26m / Short / Documentary

Synopsis

Trapped between sea and desert under a sky of molten lead, the port of Welvis Bay in Namibia is an open prison for a small community of women forced to prostitute themselves for a living. Isolated, dependent, awaiting the few sailors passing through, AIDS is all they have to look forward to. Discreetly, Cecil Moller records statements of the experience of these women, their own stories, their daily combat and their hopes for redemption, supported by religious movements that preach their rehabilitation.

Directed by Cecil Moller
