A Shakespearean drama from rural Senegal

Tierno is a young imam living in rural Senegal with his wife and daughter. His moderate brand of Islam is challenged when his brother Ousmane returns to the village brandishing a strict interpretation of scripture and tradition – and suggesting a marriage between his own son and Tierno’s daughter Nafi. Shot on location in northern Senegal, NAFI’S FATHER combines raggedly beautiful scenery with a Shakespearean tale of archetypical sibling rivalry and current-day theological conflict.
