Hyènes

Senegal, France, Switzerland / 1992 / 35 mm / 110’ / Version restaurée

As a cruel tale of corruption and cowardice, reflecting on the power of money and as a metaphor on Africa depending on western support, the story is about the revenge of a hurt woman who settles scores and about dispossessed Africa that one day will dictate its conditions: “The world has turned me into a whore. I want to turn the world into a whorehouse.”
