Abstract:This documentary deals with the situation of women in Burkina Faso who have been accused of witchcraft. The film centres on the village of Boussé, province of Kourwéogo in the Plateau Central region, where Mossi women are regularly accused of having eaten the soul of men. The director, also known as Prince Wendemi, an artist musician born in Boussé, has committed himself to raise awareness of the social exclusion of these women, who often are rejected by their families and even threatened with death. The women as well as the traditional healers and local chiefs are interviewed, while researchers, priests, pastors and imams give their views on what has to be done to fight against this phenomenon.
