Open City Documentary Festival presents:

Death of the Serpent God 

DAMIEN FROIDEVAUX / 2014 / FRANCE / 90”

Following a fight that ends badly, twenty-year-old Koumba is deported to Senegal. Having lived in France since early childhood, the troubled teenager now finds herself in a remote village, far removed from her family and Paris life. Surrounded by her disapproving distant relatives and unable to control her anger, Koumba struggles to keep hold of her life as her chances of returning to normalcy dwindle. Director Damien Froidevaux spent five years charting Koumba’s journey as she viciously fights against the system and battles her own demons to take control of her own story again.


Screening followed by Q&A with director Damien Froidevaux, hosted by Said Saad-Eddine.
