AFS Presents: LA PIROGUE

Join us July 9 for a screening of LA PIROGUE the second in our ArtMattan series.
Directed by Moussa Toure
Senegal, 2007, Digital, 87 min., Color
French/Wolof/Spanish with English subtitles
With a script adapted from the novel by Abasse Ndione (but just as easily ripped from countless newscasts), Moussa Toure tells the story of 30 Senegalese men, full of hope and desperation, attempting to get to a new life in Europe in an impossibly small boat.
