    Karsin doesn't adequately detail the political complexities of the struggle, but how can one not respond to someone like tribal leader Flor Ilva, who declares, "We women are warriors, not with weapons, but with our thoughts and through raising our children."

    Well conceived and unmanipulative, it will play well with auds attuned to its social-justice themes.

    Looks and sounds considerably better than nearly every other independent documentary of its kind, forming an argument that's clear and cogent and virtually free of obvious manipulation or pandering.

    The director's DV cinematography can be rough and ungainly, but it provides sterling glimpses of both family intimacy and its larger social context.

    This quiet, deliberately paced documentary favors interviews over fly-on-the-wall footage, but one interruption of an on-camera talk by armed soldiers is a potent reminder of how precarious the lives of this population can be, and how the perseverance of its characters represents a strikingly female display of strength.
