IT IS the story that has captivated Zimbabweans for two years, and now the growing incidence of ritualistic sex attacks on male hitch-hikers by women is set for the big screen.
A new movie set for release in June dramatises the strange phenomenon which drew international attention when three Gweru women were arrested and charged with “raping” close to two dozen men, and then “harvesting” their sperm.
Rooftop Promotions have released a one-minute 16 seconds trailer of their new movie, Sinners?, which finished filming in February.
The movie follows three prostitutes who desperately want to reap bigger financial rewards and toy with a few ideas before a businesswoman floats a novel plan: they must rape men and collect their sperm.
With the trial of the three Gweru women stalled by delayed DNA test results, Sinners? delves into the darker side of the practice and probably answers a question many Zimbabweans have been asking: what do they use the sperm for?
The answer, the movie suggests, is black magic: a belief that sperm is associated with life and regeneration (of money).
