Po di Sangui

The Tree of Souls
by Flora Gomes Fiction Francia, Guinea Bissau, Tunisia, Portogallo 1996 90'

In the animist tradition , the soul of a child lies inside a tree that was planted when he was born. That is why, when the chainsaws get close to the village in which the story takes place, the people choose to go into exile. The very well-expressed ecological message draws its depth from African traditions and culture.<%YOUTUBE=Iwcy199HmNc%>
