Lili and the Baobab

2006 NR

French photographer Lili (Romane Bohringer) takes a gig in the remote Senagalese village of Angam, where she forges an unlikely bond with local woman Aminata (Aminata Zaaria). When Lili returns to France, however, she can't quite leave Senegal behind. Soon a crisis in Angam causes Lili to weigh the consequences of going back to Africa. This quiet, probing drama screened at the San Francisco Film Festival.
