About the movie:
Lionel, a young Frenchman who has just arrived in Cotonou loses his car and his hopes in riots in the city. Zao, an African, lives with his wife Loutaya and their little girl. In spite of his qualifications Zao cannot find work. With young Sekou, his friend, they eke out a living by doing odd jobs. Zao dreams of going to Ouagadougou, the African film city, to join his father whom he has never known. Meanwhile Loutaya provides solace. Lionel and Zao meet and become great friends. In search of new dreams they travel across the country to Porto Novo.
The action-packed film "Voyage a Ouaga" had earned itself the reputation of having been the funniest film at Fespaco 2001. Its maker from Congo Brazzaville, Camille Mouyeke, believes laughter is the best route an artist can take to the audience's heart.
The event is proudly sponsored by "Power and Glory Films" and "Trip Travel", "HEC", "Bank Windhoek Arts Festival" and the "FNCC".
