The adventure is a secret

A demonstration, a banner. A silhouette seen from behind crosses a white line and directs the movements of the demonstrators. Fodé turns, shows his face and looks at us smiling: choosing when to hide and when to be seen can be decisive in the course of a life.

Mamadou, Fodé and Magasa evoke with calm and lucidity their passage from the clandestine life to the affirmation of their dignity and attachment to their adoptive country, France. Images from the past arise to testify the road traveled, the determination and course set since childhood: the pursuit of adventure.
