Sisters in Law (2005)

Florence Ayisi and Kim Longinotto


A female judge-and-prosecutor team are the focus of this documentary about a court located in Cameroon. Together, the two mete out justice the only way they know how--handling the stranger cases with mirthful glee and the tougher cases with an iron will and some stern questioning of the suspects. It makes for an amusing and invigorating hour and 40 minutes of screen time, and offers valuable insights into the workings of an African courtroom.
