18:00 TEY / Today / Aujourd'hui
Alain Gomis’s Tey chronicles a man's final day of living: it is a tender and melancholic celebration of life. Closely examining life’s fragility, Gomis takes Sache on a journey to face his final hours without fear, and by doing so he trespasses on reality; he brings us to the dreamlike world where immortality resides.
Satche, played by a charismatic American poet, actor and musician Saul Williams, wakes up one morning in the home of his parents in Dakar with the realization that he has only one day left to live.

"The end could also be the beginning of a new journey."
