La PirogueLa Pirogue
A Senegalese fisherman reluctantly accepts the task of taking men onboard his boat for a treacherous journey to Spain in hopes of a better life.

La Pirogue (Moussa Touré, Senegal, 2013; 86 min.) Baye Laye is the captain of a fishing pirogue. Like many of his Senegalese compatriots, he sometimes dreams of new horizons, where he can earn a better living for his family. When he is offered to lead one of the many pirogues that head towards Europe via the Canary Island, he reluctantly accepts the job, knowing full-well the dangers that lie ahead. Leading a group of 30 men who don't all speak the same language, some of whom have never seen the sea, Baye Laye will confront many perils in order to reach the distant coasts of Europe.
