A Faculty Fellow at BGSU’s Institute for the Study of Culture and Society, Dr. Melissa Miller’s research explores the unique challenges faced by mothers of young children on the campaign trail using the 2018 election as a case study. A record number of women ran for elective office, and a record number won. Some of the most interesting campaigns were run by mothers of young children who emphasized their role as mothers on the campaign trail in ways never seen before. Through on-the-ground campaign observation, in-depth interviews, and analysis of campaign advertising, “Moms on the Run” exposes the breakthroughs made by “moms” on the campaign trail and the barriers they nevertheless encountered.

Not far from Timbuktu, now ruled by religious fundamentalists, the cattle herder Kidane lives peacefully in the dunes with his family. In town, the people suffer, powerless, from the regime of terror imposed by the Jihadists. Music, laughter, cigarettes, even soccer have been banned. The women have become shadows but resist with dignity. Daily, the new improvised courts issue tragic and absurd sentences.
Kidane and his family had been spared the chaos that prevails in Timbuktu, but when their destiny changes abruptly, Kidane must face the new laws of the foreign occupants.
Adults only. In French and Arabic with English subtitles. 1h 37min
