This film from the African country of Guinea Bissau is pretty impressive, with an intriguing story full of gorgeous shots and camera moves. The film is told in the manner of a folktale, and is about tree worship and the migration of a tribe in search of better lands, among other things. The scene of the women singing in the river is wonderful. Director Flora Gomes (who, by the way, is a man, despite his name) is surely a talent to watch.
