About the movie:
Following Le Franc and conceived as the second installment of an unfinished trilogy of dramatic shorts entitled Tales of Little People, Mambéty works in a simpler style that reflects his move beyond documenting Africa’s victimization towards envisioning the continent’s recovery. Consequently, this film is a luminous portrait of a young handicapped girl and her determination to be a street vendor of “Le Soleil,” the national newspaper of Senegal, against the wishes of the other street boys. It is at once a tribute to the indomitable spirit of the street children of Dakar and to the individual’s capability for transforming her situation.
