Vincent Lindon (featured in Welcome, shown in 2011) plays the head of an NGO in the midst of rescuing 300 orphans, victims of the Chadian civil war, to be brought to French adoption applicants. Immersed in the brutal reality of a country at war,
the NGO members start losing their convictions and are faced with the limits of humanitarian intervention. Inspired by the events of the Zoé’s Ark controversy in 2007. Official selection at the Toronto International Film Festival.


Speakers: Anjali Prabhu, Director of the Newhouse Center for the Humanities and Professor of French at Wellesley College and author of Contemporary Cinema of Africa and the Disapora, and Regine Jean-Charles, an associate professor of Romance Languages and Literature and African and African Diaspora Studies at Boston College, who specializes in African film and gender studies.
