Scheduled to screen at the twenty third (23rd) edition of the Pan-African Film & TV Festival of Ouagadougou (FESPACO), which will take place from February 23 to March 2, 2013, is a drama from Mozambique, directed by Licinio Azevedo, titled, Virgem Margarida (Virgin Margarida) - a feature film, set in 1975, as revolution swept the streets of its capital Maputo, ridding it of prostitutes and other so-called *undersirables*. The women are then sent to re-education camps, to become "new women." However, unfortunately for her, 16-year-old Margarida is mistakenly taken; the problem is she's not a prostitute; she's actually a virgin (hence the title). The film tells her story.
