Seydou and Moussa decide to leave Dakar and embark on a journey to Europe, yearning for freedom. It’s a tough journey through the desert, past the dreadful detention centers of Libya, and over a treacherous sea. Academy Award winning director, writer, and producer Matteo Garrone engaged with people who have actually experienced this journey, providing the film with a fresh perspective on an often one-sided narrative. The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival and immediately garnered multiple awards.
