Tournées Festival: La Pirogue

4:00pm - 6:00pm CST November 9, 2013

Moussa Touré’s trenchant chronicle of a sea trek from West Africa to Europe lays bare the incalculable perils of immigration, as veteran fisherman Baye Laye reluctantly agrees to be the captain of the long, narrow canoe of the title. Illegally transporting roughly 30 people from Dakar, Senegal, to Spain, the pirogue’s passengers each hope to start anew in the West and escape the grim economic realities at home. Unlike most films about immigration, The Pirogue refuses to speak in hazy ideologies: it presents the brutal realities that millions worldwide face in the effort to leave one land for another.

The Tournées Festival at Carthage is presented in collaboration with the Diversity Task Force, the offices of the Provost and President, the Division of the Humanities, and the Modern LanguagesCommunication and Digital Media, and Religion Departments. English subtitles are available for all films.
