Twelve-year-old Adama lives in a remote village in Western Africa. Beyond the cliffs, the World of Breaths can be found, where the Nassaras reign. One night, Samba, his older brother, disappears. Defying the laws of the elders, Adama decides to set out to find him. With the unwavering determination of a child becoming a man, he launches into a quest that will take him beyond the seas, to the North, to the front lines of World War One. It is 1916.
Adama tells the story of a 12 year old boy who is forced to face the horrors of war in order to save his older brother. Throughout the film Adama encounters many people and goes through many challenges that will eventually change his life forever.
Adama is audacious and daring and reveals some violent truths about humanity. At the same time it manages to illustrate the many ways in which our society has become desensitized to certain realities. The director applied an old school type of animation to his film, combining a series of still images with a magnificent soundtrack and creating innovative visuals.
Adama is a heartfelt tribute to humanity as well as a reminder of what we can be and all that we can accomplish. It is an emotional journey- an innocent but honest adventure.
A teaching kit (levels A1-A2) will be available.
