Filming Africa: Screening and Discussion with Félicité Director Alain Gomis

Part of France-Atlanta 2017

Acclaimed French-Senegalese director Alain Gomis discusses his film “Félicité,” which follows a determined single mother in a striking portrait of contemporary Africa.

Félicité’s world is upended when her teenage son is injured in a motorcycle accident. In order to pay for his operation, Félicité embarks on a race against time through the vibrant streets of Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo.

The movie, which features transcendent music by the Congolese collective Kasai Allstars, won the Silver Bear at the 67th Berlin International Film Festival and the Yennenga Golden Stallion at the 25th FESPACO Festival in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
