Director: SANI ELHADJ MAGORI | Producer: JEAN FRANCOIS HAUTIN
Focus Years: 2010 | Country: France
"Koukan Kourcia" tells of the elderly singer Zabaya Husseyâ€™s journey from Niger to Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast to see the lives of the men who left the country over the last four decadesâ€”many after being enticed by her songsâ€”and encourage them to return to Niger to see and support their families. It was interesting to see how the hopes of the men had actually panned out and the film continues the theme of migration and loss, first within the nation state and eventually internationally.
