- 47 min
- anglais, mosuo, chinois, s.-t. anglais
A documentary on the unique sexual culture of the Mosuo people, a small minority situated in the South-West of China, and one of the last remaining matriarchal societies in the world. Without a formal marriage contract, the Mosuo traditionally build relationships based on free love and sexual satisfaction.
But can the sexual liberty and power of the Mosuo women survive as modern Chinese society encroaches their ancestral land? We follow Bima, a young Mosuo woman, and learn of her reality and of the dangers that threaten her inherited way of life.
