Description:
For children aged 11+ (in French and Dyula with Slovenian and English subtitles)

Winner of the EFA 2018 Young Audience Award. Swiss director Berni Goldblat depicts everyday life in Burkina Faso through the eyes of 13-year-old Ady.

Ady lives in France, but his father has decided to send him off on a long journey to relatives in West Africa. The boy is super excited at the prospect of a laid-back vacation in his father's country of origin, but when he finally gets there his uncle's welcome is cold and reproachful. The other members of the family are happy to see this visitor from afar and try to conciliate but Ady soon realises that his trip will not provide much in the way of relaxation.

"I didn't want to make a comedy, where you laugh all the way through, and I didn't want to do a drama where you just want to cry, but I wanted to have something that is sober in tone. I also didn't want to have too much music or too much dialogue. I think too much talking and explaining destroys the magic of cinema most of the time. I wanted to make it sober and realistic. /.../ Wallay is a coming of age film about opening yourself to the world." (Berni Goldblat)
