Faro, Goddess of the Waters

FARO, LA REINE DES EAUX (Faro, Goddess of the Waters)
Zanga (Fili Traore), a child born out of wedlock, returns to the village of his birth, years after he was forced out because of his uncertain parentage. He returns now as a successful engineer with a twofold ambition: to help the village using his engineering skills, and to pry from his mother the identity of his father. After a dangerous incident in the revered river, the superstitious villagers insist that it is Zanga's return that has angered Faro, the spirit of the river. A sacrifice is called for; and Zanga must once again stand up to superstition and patriarchal oppression, while still searching desperately for the key to his identity.
