Synopsis
This first volume offers a glimpse into the often underrepresented world of African cinema. The culture clash experienced by a Muslim family in HARAMUYA comments on the vast social and economic divisions which mark Burkina Faso's capital city. FARAW! tells the story of a mother who--after the return of her emotionally and physically devastated, political-prisoner husband--struggles to save her three children from lives of poverty and prostitution.
