This one-of-a-kind animated feature film tells the story of twelve-year-old Adama, a young boy living in an unnamed village in West Africa. It is 1916, and beyond the cliffs of his sheltered paradise, lies the World of Winds where World War I is raging. When his older brother runs away to join the Nassaras – the white men – Adama is determined to find him and bring him home. With the steadfast determination of a child coming of age, Adama defies his elders and embarks on a perilous quest that takes him over the seas to the Western Front.
We are delighted to partner with Into Film Festival to bring this extremely important film, which gives much-needed insight into the contribution of African soldiers and nations to the Great War, to young audiences in the South West.
Followed by a discussion led by Afrika Eye and African Voices Forum.
