Cannes Grand Prix award-winning film by Mati Diop

Along the Atlantic coast, a soon-to-be-inaugurated futuristic tower looms over a suburb of Dakar. Ada, 17, is in love with Souleiman, a young construction worker. But she has been promised to another man. One night, Souleiman and his co-workers leave the country by sea, in hope of a better future. Several days later, a fire ruins Ada’s wedding and a mysterious fever starts to spread. Little does Ada know that Souleiman has returned.

In Wolof and French with English subtitles.

Screening arranged by Nora Philippe and co-presented by Columbia Maison Française and Columbia University School of the Arts for Columbia | Year of Water.
