Distressed by 13-year-old Ady's serial misbehavior, his widowed father decides the boy could use a long stay in the country—"the country" being Burkina Faso, the ancestral homeland that Ady has never seen. Ady soon misses his life in France, far away from the stern uncle determined to bring his young nephew into line. The troublesome teenager resists but gradually warms to his new environment, aided by his adopted cousin and kindly grandmother. Can his unsmiling uncle also overcome his preconceptions?
The first fiction feature by veteran documentary filmmaker Berni Goldblat, WALLAY shows a documentarian's eye for the ebb and flow of life in a specific locale, attached to universal themes that will appeal to viewers of all ages and nationalities.
In French with English subtitles
Next screening: April 22, stay tuned!
