As part of the celebrations of the Centennial of American involvement into World War I, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy present the screening of the 2015 animated film Adama by Simon Rouby.
Twelve-year-old Adama lives in a remote village in Western Africa. Beyond the cliffs, the World of Breaths can be found, where the Nassaras reign.
One night, Samba, his older brother, disappears. Defying the laws of the elders, Adama decides to set out to find him. With the unwavering determination of a child becoming a man, he launches into a quest that will take him beyond the seas, to the North, to the front lines of World War One.
It is 1916.
Online registration is required for this screening. Register here.
