Faraway Roots

Racines Lointaines

Belgium, 2002


The dream of a tree, a letter to a woman that was left, the confession of a nomadic body and mind… Left in search of a lost world, the filmmaker through territories and asking people. Upside of immigration to Europe, he traces the roots of an old who still feeds the imagination of African griots.
