Description:
  [Screening @ Tiburon Film Society]

Bitter Honey: Polygamy in Bali offers a dynamic, intimate, and emotionally charged portrait of three polygamous Balinese families. Shot over a four-year period on the island of Bali, Indonesia, this feature-length film draws attention to the plight of Balinese women in polygamous marriages—which are frequently characterized by psychological manipulation, economic hardship, infidelity, and domestic violence.

Due to a societal structure where men predominate in many domains, these women are left with little voice. Bitter Honey: Polygamy in Bali draws attention to their struggle, documents those making courageous efforts to better protect and empower them, and aims to trigger a wider conversation about contemporary polygamy and women’s rights.
