Followed by a Q&A with director Alain Gomis
In this poetic, existential feast of a film coming to Film Africa 2012 from an illustrious international film festival run, French-Senegalese director Alain Gomis explores the streets of an unnamed Senegalese city through the eyes of a young man doomed to death, Satché. Hip hop artist and spoken word poet Saul Williams is a revelation as Satché, enlivening each frame with a muted intensity. A magic realist twist on the immigrant returning home, this elegiac meditation is decidedly vibrant, cool and life-affirming.
