Adama, 12, lives in an isolated village in West Africa. Beyond the Cliffs lies the Land of Breaths, where the Nassaras reign. One night, Samba, Adama's older brother, disappears. Braving the elders' prohibition, he decides to go look for him and begins a quest that will lead him beyond the seas, to the battlefields of the First World War. The year is 1916, a date that turns children into men.
Adama is Simon Rouby's first animation feature-length film.
Odd Jobs in Kinshasa
Samurel, the hero of a 9-episode series, leads us along with his friend Yasmine on an exploration of the odd jobs that make Kinshasa such a lively and vibrant city. Through portraits of a voltigeur, a newsagent, a camiste, or an egg dealer, this film invites us to discover the biggest French-speaking megalopolis in the world.
