This powerful film by Senegalese director Moussa Toure was in the Official Selection of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival and is the winner of the Golden Tanit at the 2012 Carthage Film Festival. About the film: "Baye Laye is the captain of a fishing pirogue in Dakar, Senegal. He sometimes dreams of new horizons, where he can earn a better living for his family. When he is commissioned to lead one of the many pirogues that head towards Europe, he reluctantly accepts the job, even though he understands the dangers that lie ahead. Leading a group of 30 men who don't all speak the same language, some of whom have never seen the sea, Baye Laye will confront many perils trying to reach the distant shores of Europe."
