We're pleased to be working with We Are Parable in presenting this free community screening of Banel & Adama.

The film had its world premiere in Competition at Cannes 2023, nominated for the Palme d’Or. Ramata-Toulaye Sy is only the second black woman in history to do so, and the film was the sole debut feature to be selected.

Banel and Adama are fiercely in love. The young couple live in a remote village in northern Senegal and for them, nothing else in the world exists. However, their perfect everlasting love seems on a collision course with their family’s traditions as drought strikes their community. Award-winning filmmaker Ramata-Toulaye Sy’s breathtaking debut feature follows the fated lovers in their quest to carve a life for themselves beyond the expectations of others.
