Antonio, a taxi driver, his wife, and two chidren arrive one fine afternoon at a solitary beach, looking for sea-shells. However, they will find more than expected: namely, Ombasi and Yambo, two illegal African immigrants, apparently thrown back to the ocean from where they came, in search of a better life in Spain. The sun sets, and the evening, night and morning which follow see other bizarre characters entering the scene, before the Africans' and the other characters' fates are finally decided. Written by
BWANA, which opened the 1996 Miami Hispanic Film Festival, was also one of the fest's highlights. A thriller, serving as social commentary on the situation facing African immigrants in 90's Spain, the film presents both sides of the issue fairly, and also succeeds as tense entertainment. Actor turned Director Imanol Uribe does a fine job of directing veteran actors Maria Barranco, Andres Pajares and a good ensemble cast.
