About "Benti"
Much to the distress of a mother begging her daughter to come back, promising to give her the support and respect she deserves as a human being, free to make her own choices. Benti expresses the deep pain of a mother who has also been suffering herself in silence since her childhood and who blames this society for being deeply anchored in some traditions: Heavy and unfair and totally inadequate with respect to the history of Islam where women found liberation 14 centuries ago. This is the same society that gave men, fathers and brothers, the right to dictate their power. For many girls who suffer from the injustice and lack of understanding from their surrounding families, going away becomes the only way to escape the prison they are doomed to grow up in. A prison that will, sooner or later, take from them their rights and steel their dreams, till they are buried dead or... alive.

Désarroi d’une mère qui supplie sa fille pour revenir, lui promettant le soutien et le respect qu’elle mérite en tant qu’être humain libre de faire ses choix. Benti exprime le mal profond d’une mère qui souffre elle-même en silence depuis son enfance, et qui blâme cette société ancrée profondément dans des traditions, lourdes et injustes pour certaines et en total inadéquation avec l’histoire de l’Islam où la femme exerçait sa liberté 14 siècles plus tôt. Cette même société qui donna aux pères, frères et tuteurs le droit d’exercer leur rôle de bourreaux. Pour beaucoup de filles, sous le poids de l’injustice et de l’incompréhension familiale, fuir devient la seule issue afin d’échapper à cette prison dans laquelle, elles grandiront. Une prison où elles se verront ôter leurs droits et voler leurs rêves jusqu’au jour où elles seront enterrées mortes ou... vivantes.
