La Pirogue - Film Review

For those of you interested in great cinema, telling stories of Black people, and are tired the the gnashing of teeth and hand-wringing over Hollyweird's films like "Django" then check out the new Senegalese film "La Pirogue" directed by Moussa Toure. This drama tells the story of 30 Senegalese peasants who make a break for Spain by sea in search of a better life. La Pirogue puts a human face to illegal immigration.


If you agree tell someone: https://aalbc.com/reviews/film-reviews.php?id=1703 the film opens in a limited number of theaters next week.

If you live near New York City the film will be showing at the Film Forum: http://www.filmforum.org/movies/more/the_pirogue
