Because of the corona measures imposed by HoGent we ask you to present a Covid Safe Ticket and to wear a mouth mask at MIRY. From the moment you enter the screening room the mask obligation is lifted.

What is a valid Covid Safe Ticket?
* a certificate of complete vaccination with a recognized vaccine over 13 days old
* a certificate of a negative PCR test in the last 48 hours or an antigen test (rapid test) in the last 24 hours
* a recovery certificate of up to 180 days old
* most people present this on their Covidsafe-app

The above measures only apply to our screenings in MIRY. In Sphinx Cinema, KASKcinema, Paddenhoek and Tank Station we don't ask for a Covid Safe Ticket or to wear a mask.

Les prières de Delphine

Rosine Mbakam

Les prières de Delphine - trailer

This film is the portrait of Delphine, a young Cameroonian girl who, after the death of her mother and the abandonment of her father’s parental responsibilities, was raped at the age of 13. She sinks into prostitution to support herself and her daughter. She ends up marrying a Belgian man who is three times her age, hoping to find a better life in Europe for her and her daughter. Seven years later, the European dream has faded and her situation has only gotten worse. Delphine, like others, is part of this generation of young African women crushed by our patriarchal societies and left with this Western sexual colonization as the only means of survival. Through her courage and strength, Delphine exposes these patterns of domination that continue to lock up African women. 


French & Cameroonian Creole spoken, English subtitles
