LA PIROGUE, 2012, 87 mins. Film begins at sundown.
Directed by Moussa Touré.

An absorbing drama of 30 men (and one woman) who set out on an illegal 7-day voyage from the coast of Senegal to Spain – making the perilous journey in a pirogue, a boat resembling a vastly oversized dinghy. The men hail from different ethnic and religious backgrounds, sharing a common desire to build a better future. This compelling tale says as much about the universal nature of courage and perfidy as it does about the economic realities faced by so many of the world’s people.
