Salma by Kim Longinotto

Film - Salma

Variety review: ““Salma,” for all its celebration of a life lived against the grain, has a sweet strain of melancholy that resonates, and suggests the story isn’t over.”

The above image is at the end of this wonderful documentary. Salma reflects alone on the present and the future; she knows that her biggest impact is by staying in the village, not abandoning the girls and slowly changing people’s attitudes, giving strength to the other women; it may seem insignificant, but it is very important she does it.
