AUSTRIAN PREMIERE

This film is nominated for the International Documentary Award (IDA).

 

„A respectful ode to the female orgasm in Rwanda from the perspective of Vestine Dusabe, a radio deejay with a mission.“

Guided by Vestine, an extravagant star of radio nights, the film discovers Rwandan sexuality in search of the water that gushes out the female body and reveals with humour 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.
