UMOJA: No Men Allowed


Year: 2011

UMOJA (Kiswahili for "unity") tells the life-changing story of a group of impoverished tribal Samburu women in Northern Kenya who turn age-old patriarchy on its head by setting up a women-only village. Their success and increasing fame incurs their men's' jealousy and wrath, setting off an unusual, occasionally hilarious, gender war.
