FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION: Félicité (Jan 19 – 25)

We’re proud to present Félicité, Senegal’s first-ever entry to be submitted for the foreign film Oscar nomination. 

Félicité is a proud, free-willed woman working as a singer in a bar in the Congo’s capital Kinshasa. Her life is thrown into turmoil when her 14-year-old son gets into a terrible car accident. To raise the money to save him, she sets out on a breakneck race through the streets of electric Kinshasa – a world of music and dreams.
