The Source

Release date: May. 18, 2012

Countries available: UK & Ireland


Nestled in the mountains somewhere between North Africa and the Middle East, the women of one village are on strike.

Fed up of trekking miles every single day to the nearest well newly wed Leila (Leila Bekhti – A Prophet, Paris Je T’aime, Mesrine) leads a campaign to force the men to share the duty of bringing water to the village.

Overcoming the wrath of the village elders and an unexpected visit from an old flame, Leila brings the colourful local traditions face-to-face with the modern world.

From acclaimed director Radu Mihaileanu (The Concert) The Source is a fun, lively and utterly unforgettable journey through the African mountains to the heart of a vibrant community.
