The cult of admirers surrounding this masterpiece by Senegalese filmmaker Djibril Diop Mambéty grows by the year. By turns naturalistic and audaciously surreal, this postcolonialist dream movie follows a pair of young lovers who dream of abandoning their small village for the cosmopolitan streets of France.
Restored in 2008 by Cineteca di Bologna/L’immagine Ritrovata laboratory, in association with the Film Foundation’s World Cinema Project and the family of Djibril Diop Mambéty. Restoration funded by Armani, Cartier, Qatar Airways and Qatar Museum Authority.
