Espoir voyage
Michel K. Zongo
2011 - France/Burkina Faso - Couleur - 81'

In Burkina Faso, the young people emigration towards Ivory Coast is like a ritual, a passage to the state of adult… If, usually, the rule is to leave to come back, many of them never come back in this adventure, for various reasons. Joanny, my older brother, suddenly left our family one morning of 1978. After eighteen years of absence, as we were still without news from him, we learn Joanny died. To try to understand what drives my brother to leave at forteen years old, I make the same travel, looking for his traces and his history.
