During FLEFF Lab Friday, I found myself amongst a group of esteemed professionals in the film industry. Sitting in the audience, I was enraptured by the stories of Idrissou Mora Kpal.
Kpal brought his stories to life. He brought us to Europe as he detailed his studies there, and how he lived there without ever getting a visa.
We watched the trailer Arlit – deuxième Paris and were transported to Niger; amidst the swirling sands of the Sahara desert.
Talking Kpal’s film, Indochine: Traces of a Mother, took me to France, Vietnam, and to Africa.
FLEFF Lab Friday took place in Park 220, but that’s not really where we were.
We were in Niger.
We weren't in Ithaca. We were all over the world.
