    • Synopsis
    • Zanga, a child born out of wedlock, is driven out of his village. After many years, he returns to find out who his father is. At the moment of his arrival, something happens that the villagers interpret as the river spirit Faro’s angry reaction to Zanga’s coming. The film uses this fateful moment in the history of a village to bring us closer to the changing rural regions of Africa: suddenly, oppressed people are making demands and the local authorities are under pressure. Tradition has to find compromises with modernity so that life can go on.
