King Lati the First
Director: Uri Bar-On
Country: Israel, 2008, Documentary
Duration: 70 Min
Language: Hebrew/English/Russian/Wolof w/English subtitles

Lati is only eight years old but he already has a heavy load on his shoulders. Born in Tel Aviv to a Senegalese father and a Belarusian mother, he is heir to the throne of a Senegalese tribe. But he is also a typical Israeli child; a fan of McDonald's and especially of the local basketball team.  He is now about to travel to his kingdom for the first time where over one million of his subjects await his return. Told with a light, comic tone, this film highlights the personal cost of globalization and the dilemma we face as we straddle the crossroads of tradition and modernity.
After film panel: Kirk Read, Humanities Chair, Bates College,  Abraham L. Peck,  Director of Academic Council for Jewish, Christian, and Islamic Studies, University of Southern Maine and Fatuma Hussein, Director, United Somali Women of Lewiston.
