WAALO FENDO: WHERE THE EARTH FREEZES
Director: Mohammed Soudani
From: Senegal / Switzerland
Year: 1998 Minutes: 65
Genre: Drama
Language: Wolof with English subtitles

Milan, like Paris or Stuttgart, and like many other European cities, is the theater of the drama of immigration. Demba reconstructs his story and that of his brother Yaro, both Senegalese immigrants in Italy, in a long and fragmentary flashback that begins with Yaro's murder and recounts their departure from the village, arrival in Europe, the work they find selling lighters and picking tomatoes in the south of Italy: the stages every "non European Union citizen" goes through in Italy. It is a story of immigration, dashed hopes and permanent struggle that most people are unaware of.  Waalo Fendo illustrates the dehumanization faced by so many immigrants all over the world.
