The Last Shelter

By Ousmane Zoromé Samassekou

In Gao, Mali, the Maison du Migrant offers a refuge to those attempting to reach Europe... or on their way back, with only their broken dreams as luggage. Intimate stories intertwine, from the meeting of two teenage girls and a woman with no memory. Malian filmmaker Ousmane Zoromé Samassékou has created a vibrant piece of cinematic poetry about exile and its ghosts, which has won numerous international awards.

Co-presented with ARTE
