Farewell to Africa

Adieu à l'Afrique

Directed by Pierre-Alain Meier
Switzerland, 2017


In 2009, the bodies of dozens of migrants, who had been trying to reach Europe via the Canary Islands, were washed up by ocean currents onto a beach in Mauritania. Among these bodies was that of a young white woman. Intrigued by this incident, eight years later, the filmmaker returns to Senegal.
