Ramata-Toulaye Sy / FR, SN, ML, QA, 2023 / 87 min.

When Adama’s twin brother dies, he has to take over the role of head of the village; but he’d rather be with Banel, the woman who loves him – the couple soon find themselves in conflict with the village community. This feature debut by French Senegalese filmmaker Ramata-Toulaye Sy is both enchanting and poignant.
