hope1Hope by Boris Lojkine (2013, 1h26, drama)

Deep in the Sahara desert, Leonard, a young man from Cameroon, rescues Hope, a Nigerian woman. Both of them are making the long treacherous journey to Europe. Grappling with dangers around every corner, the two struggle to survive the corruption and poverty that rules the edges of the towns they pass through, as they desperately seek a better life for themselves. From ghetto wars to dishonest officials, the couple persists with their quest, having lost all their possessions, except for their hope. Their journey reflects the real-life risks of migration that many undocumented immigrants endure. In a fiercely hostile world where safety requires staying with one’s own people, these two try to find their way together, and to love each other.

Won SACD Award at the Cannes Film Festival in 2014
