This silent film restricts itself to the inner world of a ten-year-old girl who creates another reality using paper silhouettes.
Experimental, political puppet animation is a remarkable exception in African cinema. Made with patience and barely contained rage.
Walk with Me
The dream, but also the nightmare of a young African dancer. Unchildish puppetry film. Fantasy and reality clash.
As the bride prepares for her wedding day in a small Ugandan village, she is torn between two futures for herself.
