Des marelles et des petites filles…
- 52 min
On all continents, little girls draw figures on the ground on which they hop on one foot while chanting nursery rhymes and naive songs: it is the game of hopscotch, which goes from the ground to the sky… Everywhere, little girls talk about school, their future husband, the children they will have, the job they will have, the future they would like to have better for themselves and their families. Too often, however, through ignorance, poverty, perversion, stupidity, wickedness or superstition, adults steal their childhood: denial of the right to education, forced labour, mutilation and sexual abuse, etc. From India, Thailand, Yemen, Peru, Burkina Faso and Haiti, girls aged between 8 and 14 tell us about their lives. Fragile and strong, they are all beautiful. Listen carefully to the voices of Soni, Kamlesh, Mou, Yui, Dalal, Esmeralda, Fatou, Adiaratou, Safi and Maude.
