Grand Voyage with Africa
[BEYOND THE HUMAN DREAM] Au delà du rêve humain

I am in Japan, and the news that reaches me from my country is not good. Terrorists continue to mourn families and decimate entire villages, forcing people to leave their communities. I decide to talk about what my country is going through and I put it in parallel with Japan, the first country in the world to suffer the nuclear dictatorship of the imperialists. Japan was able to recover from its second world war, my country must also stand up and take its destiny in hand.

movie trailer
This film is the result of a training, a writing residency that I followed with love in Nara, Japan thanks to the guidance of Naomie KAWASE and her technical, artistic and administrative staff. I thank them and UNESCO for the opportunity to make this beautiful film in a beautiful country like Japan. Japanese people are adorable and very humble, studious and very hardworking. Thank you for this film.

Recommendations from the NIFF Supporters

Burkina Faso, where coups still occur frequently. I am reminded of the fact that we live in a peaceful Japan. However, when I saw the last scene, I felt the warmth of the people living in their homeland.
