Part of Film 2018
Directed by Mahamat-Saleh Haroun | 2017

With Eriq Ebouaney, Sandrine Bonnaire, Ibrahim Burama

New York Times Critic’s Pick

Back by popular demand following a sold out screening in April (for the opening night of our retrospective Mahamat-Saleh Haroun: Modern Griot), Haroun’s latest is an urgent, deeply moving migrant’s tale drawn from the director’s own experiences. Abbas (Ebouaney) is a refugee from the war-torn Central African Republic living a transitory life as a fruit vendor in Paris as he awaits final word on his residency status. A relationship with a French woman (Bonnaire) offers the promise of a new life—but for Abbas, each day comes with fresh uncertainties. With supreme empathy, Haroun offers a heartrending look at a life in limbo.
