1st Rendez-Vous with Francophone Cinema in Abidjan
The very first Rendez-Vous with Francophone Cinema will take place in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, from December 8 through 10, 2016, at the Majestic Ivoire Cinema, a magnificent theater with seating for 385 that opened in June 2015.
This event, which was initiated by Unifrance and its partners in the international Francophone community, is open to the public. Audiences will have the opportunity to see six films presented by their key crew members, including a preview screening of Welcome to Gondwana (invitation only) held on opening night on December 8. Welcome to Gondwana is a Franco-Ivorian co-production led by Mandarin on the French side and supported by the Ivory Coast's Ministry of Culture. On the same evening, Wùlu will be presented in an exclusive screening in Bamako, Mali.
- Tour de France by Rachid Djaïdani.
- Wùlu by Daouda Coulibaly, screened in an African premiere in the presence of all key creative crew members. This film, which represents Mali, is seen as the African answer to Scarface.
- My Life as a Courgette by Claude Barras, a majority-Swiss production.
- The White Knights by Joachim Lafosse, a film shot in the Republic of Chad, which represents Belgium.
- He Even Has Your Eyes by Lucien Jean-Baptiste, screened in the presence of the Senegalese actress Aïssa Maïga, which represents France.
Some of these films will also be screened in other digital theaters across French-speaking Africa, including the Magic Cinéma Babemba, in Bamako, Mali, and the Normandie Cinema in N'Djamena, in the Republic of Chad.
