Banel & Adama
- Ramata-Toulaye Sy
- Senegal, France, Mali
In a remote village in northern Senegal, the introspective Adama finds himself drawn to Banel, a passionate and rebellious spirit. Together, they make the bold decision to carve out their own destiny, opting to live independently from their respective families and be with each other. When Adama refuses to step into the role expected of him as the village’s future leader, it sets off a chain reaction that challenges tradition and tests the strength of their love.
With striking cinematography enriched by subtle elements of magical realism, Banel & Adama presents a visually enthralling journey.
