Espoir Voyage

“My older brother Joanny abruptly left the family one morning in 1978 to emigrate to the Ivory Coast when I was just 5 years old.

This is the trailer of the documentary film. Lower on this page you can watch the whole film.

After an absence of 18 years, when we had no news of him, Augustin, a cousin who had just returned from the Ivory Coast, announced that Joanny had died.

In search of his traces and his story, I decided to travel from Koudougou (Burkina Faso) to the Ivory Coast, on the same bus, on the same path as those who emigrate, a little like my brother did himself, I imagine, 32 years ago. “
