Movie Review: Women of the Weeping River

Satra, a widow is caught in an escalating blood feud stretching back generations. She initially seeks vengeance for the death of husband but finds herself being convinced by Farida to leave the land after the death of her only child Amiya. Beyond the will of her family she secretly meets up with the matriarch of the rival clan to seek possible reconciliation.

Women of the Weeping River is a powerful depiction of the struggles faced by armed clan conflicts in Mindanao. Inspiring story, visually magnificent, fine direction and solid production. If you want to know more and understand the lives of our fellow Filipinos in Mindanao, watch this film.
One of the must see film on this year's QCinema International Film Festiva 2016.

My Verdict:  4/5
