SILENT MONOLOGUE AND THE PIROGUE
SATURDAY, JULY 27 @ 3PM

SILENT MONOLOGUE/THE PIROGUE

SILENT MONOLOGUE
In a voice-over, we hear the thoughts of Amy, a girl from a rural area of Senegal who works as a domestic for a well-to-do family in Dakar. She complains about her employer, who continuously criticizes her and gets on her case, and she talks about her dream of one day opening her own eatery. Meanwhile, we see her sweep the pavement, prepare the food and clean the house. The contrast with her vast and barren native region is enormous. In Dakar, some 150,000 young women work as housekeepers for families whose daughters can go to school.
Directed by Khady Sylla and Charlie Van Damme, 2008, 48 min, Senegal/Belgium, Docu-drama, French and Wolof w/ English subtitles

THE PIROGUE
In Moussa Toure's powerful epic fiction film, Baye Laye is the captain of a fishing pirogue. When he is offered to lead one of the many pirogues that head towards Europe via the Canary Island, he reluctantly accepts the job. Leading a group of 30 men who don't all speak the same language, some of whom have never seen the sea, Baye Laye will confront many perils in order to reach the distant coasts of Europe.
Directed byMassa Toure, 2012, 87 min, Senegal/France/Germany, Drama, French and Wolof with English subtitles
