KOUKAN KOURCIA, Le Cri de la tourterelle

Director : Sani Elhadj Magori


A long journey from Niger to Côte d’Ivoire, to meet Niger people who were forced into exile twenty years ago by the songs of Zabaya Hussey, a hugely popular female singer. She is now reaching out to them with a song asking them to come home to their country. The film raises, in song, the universal issue of separation : why did they leave their native land ? And what has kept them away for so long ?
