7:00pm
La Pirogue  (Movie / Film)

Presented by Ken Harrow, MSU Department of English

In coordination with One Book, One Community

Moussa Touré's drama chronicles a group of West African immigrants who attempt a hazardous illegal crossing to mainland Europe.
Illuminating the desperate and moving human stories behind lurid headlines about illegal immigration, La Pirogue is a colorful and compelling drama about a boat full of would-be economic migrants attempting the perilous weeklong Atlantic crossing from Senegal to mainland Europe. Capably directed by Moussa Touré, a sometime politician and bittersweet chronicler of his country's social woes in several previous dramas and documentaries, this Un Certain Regard entry at Cannes is dedicated to the 5000 or so Africans who have died trying to cross to Europe in the last decade.
