The Land of Women is a historical drama inspired by the traditional Sardinian figure of the Coga, the village witch. Fear and superstition dominate the life of a little girl born seventh after six other girls. In a rural Sardinia at the turn of the Second World War, Fidela is, in spite of herself, the witch of the village: she cures evil spells and gives birth to everyone’s children, but never her own, because it is good that no man touches her. And when Bastiana, an illegitimate seventh daughter is entrusted to Fidela, she not only discovers the power of feeling like a mother, but will begin to question all the beliefs and traditions imposed upon her.

BIF&ST – Bari International Film Festival 2023: ItalianFilmFest – Best Actress

Paola Sini winner Mariangela Melato Award

Paola Sini won the Mariangela Melato Award for the best leading actress for LA TERRA DELLE DONNE (The Land of Women), directed by Marisa Vallone.


“An exciting film, full of evocative images, where the only special effect is given by the natural beauty of one of the oldest lands, such as Sardinia, accompanied by indigenous and primordial sounds that transport the viewer into the deepest depths of the film.”

“Just like a poem by Quasimodo, Baudelaire or Rimbaud, it not only captures sight and hearing, but also calls into question the other senses, and this because it establishes a visceral link with earth and water, which is a symbol of rebirth, renewal, purification and of life itself”
