African Trilogy: Sylvain L’Espérance

African Trilogy: Sylvain L’Espérance

Join us on a trip to the most remote holiday destination so far; the centre of Western Africa; during the last week of August. Looking through the camera of director Sylvain L’Espérance, we will offer you a unique encounter with the life stories of people that might seem distant at first glance; which, however, are closer to us than we would have thought. They have a common denominator that links us all; the unintended impact of globalization. In collaboration with Canada’s RIDM festival, DAFilms.com invites you to open three African film chapters in the week from August 29 to September 11 for free.

Leave it to us and join us on a two-week leave with Prague students who have packed games for the road, postcards (1 CZK a piece), stories from the Balkans and a large dose of experiment in their backpacks.

It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images.
