WHILE WE LIVE
Kandia, an African woman in her fifties who has lived in Sweden for 30 years, decides to move back to Gambia. Her son Ibbe, who dreams of a career in hip hop and is about to make a break through, goes with her. Their encounter with their homeland, however, doesn’t turn out the way they imagined. A warm, broad drama comedy about a universal theme: identity.
(Dir. Dany Kouyaté, 91 min, 2016, Sweden, Drama, Swedish with English subtitle)
