(1973) 85 minutes
Directed by Djibril Diop Mambéty
Starring Magaye Niang, Myriam Niang and Christoph Colomb
With a stunning mix of the surreal and the naturalistic, Djibril Diop Mambéty paints a fractured portrait of the disenchantment of post independence Senegal in the early 1970s. In this picaresque fantasy-drama, the disaffected young lovers Anta and Mory, fed up with Dakar, long to escape to the glamor and comforts they imagine France has to offer, but their plan is confounded by obstacles both practical and mystical.
