Directed by Safi Faye | 1996
With Magou Seck, Alioune Konaré, Isseu Niang
A 14-year-old girl finds herself caught between tradition and her own heart when she rejects the marriage her family has arranged for her. The stunning final film to date from pioneering Senegalese director Safi Faye reflects her work as an ethnologist, marrying a sensitively observed portrait of rural Senegalese life with a powerful drama that speaks to the experiences of young women coming of age in a changing society.
