Recently selected as France’s entry to the Academy Awards in 2020, this Cannes Jury Prize winner is the Opening Film of the festival on 29 November. Ayadi, Zonga and Kanoute will thereafter be in attendance at its first screenings in Pretoria and Cape Town while the workshops provide an opportunity for in-depth discussion and exchange.  Targeting young filmmakers in particular the workshop sessions will interrogate the making of the film and engage local filmmakers about filmmaking processes in general.
