Director

He made many short films, like “Police Violence” (1993), “The Fire Proof” (1995), and “The Mavericks” (1998), before making “Voyage a Ouaga” (2001). “Voyage a Ouaga” was his first feature film and was part of the official selection at FESPACO 2001.

Synopsis
Lionel, a young Frenchman, who has just arrived in Cotonou, Benin, loses his car, airplane ticket and passport and his hopes in riots in the city. Zao, an African with his wife Loutaya and their little girl. In spite of his qualifications Zao can't find work. With young Sekou, his friend, they make 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 friends. In search of new dreams they travel across the country to Porto Novo.
This is a humours road-movie mocking European and African prejudices.
