This doc follows the admirable women working at Bobbi Bear, an organization in South Africa aimed at arresting child rapists and comforting their victims. There are some surprising moments of levity in the camaraderie between these women. There is a coldness, though, in the film's fly on the wall style. That distance is never quite broken. Nevertheless, Rough Aunties is worth seeing. Best Documentary Feature nominee. 83 minutes.
