To date there are four features in Alain Gomis’ body of work, and all four are steeped in intelligence, humanity, poetry and gritty urban realism. Born to a Senegalese father and a French mother, Alain Gomis rose to prominence when his first feature, L’Afrance, a coming-of-age story about a Senegalese student in France, won the Silver Leopard at Locarno in 2001. Filmed in Paris, Dakar and Kinshasa, these four films explore rootlessness, freedom and the search for identity. The director will give a master class and present his first feature, Andalucia and his last, Félicité, which won the Silver Bear at the Berlinale and the Golden Stallion at Fespaco.
