Women's Kingdom

Beautifully shot and featuring intimate interviews, this documentary offers a rare glimpse into one of the last matriarchal societies in the world. Mosuo women control their own finances and do not marry or live with partners; they practice what they call "walking marriage." A man may be invited into a woman's hut to spend a "sweet night," but must leave by daybreak. This finely wrought film is a sensitive portrayal of extraordinary women struggling to hold on to their extraordinary society.
