Dreams of Dust France, Canada, Burkina Faso 2006 | 86 min | OV | Colour | FF 2007

rated for 0 + years
Mocktar is a farmer from Nigeria who hopes to strike it rich in the gold mines of Burkina Faso. But he enters a hellhole of sand and wind. Greed has stripped the gold-seekers of their humanity and dignity, whole families are sacrificed to the pursuit of the gleaming metal. Surprisingly, this harsh depiction of reality is suffused with humour and irony, and ultimately even hopeful moments.
