Reed Dance

Poland2000documentary57'Special screenings

Held in the Kingdom of Eswatini, the titular reed dance is an annual ceremony where tens of thousands of unmarried women come to dance in extremely skimpy outfits in front of the king in the hope that he will choose one of them as his next wife. The film's heroines, however, do not all dream of becoming the king's wife. The film shows how a joyful kingdom dies of AIDS in a joyful way.
