Djibril’s Forest, an awardwinning film

In early 2020, Djibril’s Forest – our first short film – was released. The film, produced by our founders Kristoff Leue and Saydou Kalaga, tells the story of Djibril, a young Sahelian shepherd who travels far to find the forest his grandfather told him about. After being betrayed and mistreated during his search, he finally realizes that his grandfather’s forest no longer exists. Fortunately, his father comes to his aid.

Today, a year and a half after the film’s release, Djibril’s Forest has won two awards and has been selected for a dozen film festivals.
