85 minutes ◆ France ◆ 2015 ◆ Animation

This film screened on Sunday 29th November 2015.

This year’s choice for younger audiences is a striking and powerful animation. When 12-year-old Adama’s elder brother Samba leaves their isolated West African village in the night, tempted with gold by the People of the Wind, brave Adama sets out to bring him home. Crossing continents to reach war-torn Europe, he tries to make sense of a world in which Samba, along with thousands of others, has been sent to fight for France. With stunning scenes that shift from desert sandstorms to ghostly troops, this is a stirring mix of fable and history. (AM)
