THE PIROGUE - GALA SCREENING
In Moussa Touré powerful epic fiction film The Pirogue, a group of 30 men and a woman sail to Europe in a pirogue, facing the sea and the possibility of never reaching their destination in exchange for the myth of a better life in Europe.

"Illuminating the desperate and moving human stories behind lurid headlines about illegal immigration, La Pirogue is a colorful and compelling drama about a boat full of would-be economic migrants attempting the perilous week long Atlantic crossing from Senegal to mainland Europe. Capably directed by Moussa Touré, a sometime politician and bittersweet chronicler of his country's social woes in several previous dramas and documentaries, this Un Certain Regard entry at Cannes is dedicated to the 5000 or so Africans who have died trying to cross to Europe in the last decade." The Hollywood Reporter.

Directed by Moussa Touré, 2012, 87mins, Senegal
