Wallay by Berni Goldblat (2017, 84 min.)

Ady, thirteen, no longer listens to his father who has raised him alone and decides to send him to live with his uncle Amadou and their family for the summer…in Burkina Faso, far from home. In a country where Ady has never set foot, young boys become men at age thirteen. But Ady, convinced that he is merely on vacation, understands things differently.


Join us Thursday, October 5 at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, October 7 at 1:30 p.m. for two more Chicago premières from the Champs-Élysées Film Festival!
