Primary tabs

“Above Water” (“Marcher sur l’eau”) details the life of 12-year-old Houlaye, who travels several kilometers each day to fetch water until her village unites to construct a well. This fundamentally could change the lives of a group of people who have literally been walking on water since birth. Screening followed by Q&A with award-winning French film director Aïssa Maïga, moderated by Stéphanie Boulard. The Q&A will be recorded and shared on our website.
