Nu Guo, in the Name of the Mother



Nu Guo, in the Name of the Mother

In Yunnan, China, at a height of 2,700 meters at the foot of the Himalayas Mountains, the Moso is a non violent egalitarian community led by women without discrimination, oppression or repression irrespective of gender. For thousands years they have been proving that a harmonious and peaceful life is still possible. The beauty of the environment, direct accounts and personal thoughts intertwine around the theme of absence of violence.
What are the foundations making such a community of about 40,000 people exist, ‘an exemplary society’ as declared by the United Nations in 1995 on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of their creation? But above all, how long will they be able to resist the pressures of a market economy provoked by a more and more pervasive mass tourism?

The documentary by Francesca Rosati Freeman and Pio d’Emilia will be screened at the Mumbai Women's International Film Festival. Co-director Pio d'Emilia will attend the screening.
