Dir. Mati Diop. 2019, 104 mins. DCP. In French and Wolof with English subtitles. With Mama Sané, Amadou Mbow, Ibrahima Traoré. Arranged to marry a wealthy man in a suburb of Dakar, Senegal, young Ada (Sané) is heartbroken when her true love, a migratory laborer seeking opportunities abroad, goes missing at sea. But that is only the first in a series of vanishings and hauntings, which besiege Ada and confound a local detective, and manifest the community’s anger, frustration, and deepest desires. The latest film from emerging auteur Mati Diop (A Thousand Suns) is a sui generis, genre-crossed, uncompromising work of cinema that is as formally dexterous as it is politically acute. Winner of the 2019 Cannes Grand Prix.
