Film, Thu 21 Nov 2019




Winner of the Cannes Grand Prix, this striking debut feature by Mati Diop takes place in Dakar, Senegal, where workers on a vast newly-constructed tower block gaze out over the impassive ocean. One of the labourers, Souleiman, is among those who have not been paid for months, and who consequently leaves by boat seeking prospects overseas. His secret girlfriend is Ada, who cannot mourn Souleiman’s disappearance because she is engaged to another man. Ada regroups with her girlfriends and events take mournful, then supernatural turns. The air is thick with spectres in this unique highlight of Sub-Saharan cinema.

Part of Official Selection, LIFF 2019’s selection dedicated to new British and international cinema.
