FilmWOMEN was made in Barbagia, a rocky region in the middle of Sardinia, where most men from local villages spend most of their time with their herds far from their families. The houses are left to the women, who take care of children, work in the fields, gather wood and bake bread, the herdsmen’s meal. Filmed in villages at the ends of steep, unpaved roads, the film reminds of the women’s lot, their patience and quiet devotion.
