coup de coeur pour le film “espoir voyage”!

De Michel K. Zongo


In Burkina Faso, the young people emigration towards Ivory Coast is like a ritual, a passage to the state of adult… But usually, the rule is to leave to come back.

In this adventure, many of them never come back, for various reasons hard to understand by those who stayed.

Joanny, my older brother, suddenly left our family one morning of 1978.
After 18 years of absence, as we were still without news from him, one of our cousin who just came back from Ivory Coast, told us Joanny died. To try to understand what drives my Brother to leave at 14, I make the same travel from Koudougou (Burkina Faso) to Ivory Coast, looking for his traces and his history.

In this documentary, I make the same travel, with the same bus, on the same road than those who emigrate, as my Brother {;} did 32 years ago.
