Male   identity,   before   brandishing   the   national   colors   must raise   a   banner   with   no   colors   since   it   wears   them   all,   the female banner. For   16   years,   the   camera   has   been   catching   precisely   each step,   each   hand,   each   breath   in   a   graceful   and   authentic   move expressing a feminity searching for itself. This    is    not    an    dancing    abecedarium    nor    a    brochure    of playmates,   nor   a   feminist   petition,   it   is   built   on   life   and   death   with a dancing heart. Women   here   are   not   philosophers   nor   political   partisans,   they     confide serenely and freely. Assia   Guemra   had   the   France   Taekwondo   championship   before she   became   a   dancer.   a   discipline   where   the   color   of   the   belt does not matter if you cannot face your opponent. In   Middle-Eastern   dancing,   the   belt   is   not   formal   and   gives   its tempo to the belly. the   belt   is   not   a   nightclub   accessory   nor   a   cinematographic   lure, but   an   axis   making   love   for   women,   for   mothers,   for   wifes,   for sisters for friends rotate, it is the missing star of our screens. The   director   comes   close   to   the   womb   that   carried   him   and   to the   body   where   he   finds   refuge   in,   and   understands   that   the woman is his mirror.
