When Senegal's entry for Best International Feature Film was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at Cannes, it made Mati Diop the first black woman to direct a film feature In Competition. A soon-to-be-inaugurated futuristic tower looms over a suburb of Dakar. Ada, 17, is in love with Souleimane, a young construction worker. But she has been promised to another man. One night, Souleimane and his co-workers disappear at sea. (Senegal, 2019, 104 Mins, TV-14, Wolof/French/English | Dir. Mati Diop)
