ABOUT THE FILM

Popular radio host Vestine Dusabe is a woman on a happy mission: promoting sexual pleasure and preserving Rwanda’s culture of kunyaza – female ejaculation. Rwandan men take pride in their ability to evoke the “sacred water” rather than in the size of their own genitals. Dusabe takes risqué calls on her late-night show, speaks frankly to schoolgirls about female pleasure as central to Rwandan culture, and discusses orgasms with an International Women’s Day crowd. Lush water imagery adorns this cheerfully honest film, which won the Audience Award and was named Most Innovative Documentary at the Palermo Sole Luna Doc Film Festival.
