故事簡介：Seydou Tall is an internationally renowned actor who lives a comfortable life in Paris, despite painfully separating from his wife, who decides, at the last moment to deprive him of the company of his son Nathan on a trip to Dakar as part of a book tour to his family's country of origin. Meanwhile, in a village in northeastern Senegal, schoolboy Yao, 13, secretly prepares to leave for the capital, 387 km away, in order to meet the real-life author and to get him to sign a battered old copy of his book, which he watches with the eyes of a hawk. This young hero makes it to Dakar by hopping on a train, before succeeding in meeting his "idol". The boy’s determination amuses and softens Seydou to the point of hosting Yao for the night at his hotel, before deciding on a whim to take him home in a taxi-brousse. 《Yao》 Length：103min; Year：2019 Director：Philippe Godeau; Writers: Philippe Godeau (screenplay), Agnès de Sacy (screenplay) Stars：Omar Sy, Lionel Louis Basse, Fatoumata Diawara Award：No award, but with beautiful scene and cultural knowledge from a rural Senegalese village to the capital Dakar 日期：11 September, 2020 (Fri) 時間：7:30pm-9:30pm 地點：African Center in Tsim Sha Tsui 集合時間及地點：Assemble @7:15-7:20pm @Jordan MTR station exit D concourse level, after Octopus validator, where next to Octopus Card Enquiry Machine. 名額：6people limited (Other movie-watchers in event as well) 語言：French with English subtitles (法語對白,附英文字幕) 主辦單位：African Center Hong Kong 費用：$10HKD (Extra$50 for 1 special home-made style African drink + 1 plate with at least 3 types of snacks) 報名：Join with info: mobile no., M/F, dinner or not-> Payment to Hang Seng Bank acc:[masked] (NG Y** S***)/ PayMe acc:[masked]-> whatsapp following details: MeetUp name, Bank-in notification] ***a) This movie screening is in French speaking with English subtitle. ***b) Participants are required to follow instruction of the venue. ***c) Electronic reply may not function before the start of activity within 1.5hr, contact by calling pls. ***d) Late comer may be restricted to admit and continue in the activity. ***e) Photos taken by our group during activity will be as record and promotion.
