BANEL ET ADAMA
In a small remote village in northern Senegal, Banel and Adama long for a home of their own. Having decided to live separately from their families, Adama refuses to accept his obligation as the future chief of the village. When Adama informs the village council of his intention, the entire community is thrown into turmoil. The promised rains fail to come, the cattle in the pastures die and the seeds wither. Banel and Adama come to realize where they live is no place for their passions, much less for chaos. Ramata-Toulaye Sy's first feature film was in the official competition of the 2023 Cannes Film Festival.
