Ma Famille Africaine| 1hr : 20mins
Director: Thomas Thuemena | Producer: Christian Davi
Focus Years: 2004 | Country: Switzerland
Thomas is a slightly calculating film director from Zurich. Lea is a proud and liberated African woman. Together they form an explosive couple. She feels homesick; he thinks about the rent. She complains about her difficulty integrating with the Swiss; he has to cope with importing monkey meat in his suitcase. This tragic-comedy swings back and forth between laughter and tears at the couple's deep desire to remain together, in spite of their differences.
