Sex, Okra and Salted Butter
Cannes award-winning Chadian director Mahamat-Saleh Haroun reveals his astonishing versatility with this hilarious family comedy set in France, in which the endearing but patriarchal Malik has to cope with his wife Hortense leaving him for a much younger white man, and discovering that his son is gay. Retaining the profundity of human insight of his earlier films, and his signature visual style, Africa’s leading filmmaker offers a refreshingly humorous take on African immigration to Europe.
