As part of its film series "Films Across Borders: Stories of Migration", the Cultural Services of the French Embassy present the screening of the 2015 film Hope by Boris Lojkine.
Deep in the Sahara desert, as they try to get to Europe, Leonard, a young man from Cameroon, rescues Hope, a Nigerian woman. In a fiercely hostile world where safety requires staying with one's own people, these two try to find their way together, and to love each other.
