Dann Dolé // Between the Rains . #AFF24

Africa Film Festival Ghent 2024

  • Short documentary: Dann Dolé (Résilience) by Pierre Maurice Lopy
    (Senegal, 2022) (12 min.)
    Spoken: Wolof / Subtitled: English

    Ndeye Aminata Seck, a mother of three, wakes up early every day to prepare and sell meals at her food stall from morning to evening to provide for her family. The film is a testimony to the power of independence, ambition and willpower.
  • Main documentary: Between the Rains by Andrew H. Brown and Moses Thuranira
    (Kenya/United States, 2023) (82 min.)
    Spoken: Swahili / Subtitled: English

    This visually stunning documentary tells the story of the Turkana community who, during a period of prolonged drought in northern Kenya, increasingly face violent clashes with rival groups hunting their livestock. The film follows Kolei, a shepherd boy who tries to adapt to the radically changing climatic conditions in his pastoral region. The young man not only struggles with his position as a warrior, he also questions the erosion of the culture that has shaped every aspect of his life. This moving coming-of-age story captivatingly shows how climate change threatens one of the world's oldest communities.
