The Blood of Women by Christian Lajoumard

The Pokot people reside in the northwest region of Kenya and in parts of Uganda.
Proud and fiercely independent, they are proprietors of a strong culture and particularly vigorous traditions. Among these traditions is FGM, the practice of mutilating young girls as an obligatory passage into adulthood.
This film is a compilation of accounts from those who live this tradition – those who combat and those who submit to it.
