Above Water / Marcher sur l’eau (Orange Studio) details the life of 12-year-old Houlaye, who travels several kilometers each day to fetch water until her village unites to construct a well, which could fundamentally change the lives of a group of people who have literally been walking on water since birth.  

The screening will be followed by Q&A with award-winning French film director Aïssa Maïga, moderated by Stéphanie Boulard. Reception to follow!
