The Wedding Ring is a story of love, pain, sensuality, and marriage. Rahmatou Keïta’s second feature offers an empowering female-character-driven take on romantic fiction. It’s also an immersive introduction to the fast-fading customs of Niger’s Sahelian people.
This is the first feature film from Niger (a country with no active cinemas) funded from entirely within the continent. Written and directed by Rahmatou Keïta starring her daughter Magaajyia Silberfeld as Tiyaa.
A beautiful film showing insights into a community that is rarely ever seen on film.
