Ya Wooto (World Premiere) - Northside DIY Film Competition Feature

Directed by Jenny Cartwright

68min/2014/Burkina Faso and Canada/French and Mooré with English subtitles

Sylvain did not complete grade school. That is why he dreams of getting his driver's license. With a driver's license in hand, Sylvain could drive merchandise trucks, a job which would allow him to find a wife and start a family. In Burkina Faso, you are not really an adult until you are married.


Meanwhile, he works seven days a week serving beers in one of Ouagadougou's thousands of "buvettes". Work is home for him: he sleeps in the backroom and is fed every day. He saves 100% of the 20$ he makes in a month in order to reach his goal.



In a year's time and with God's help he will have saved up enough cash to start his driving lessons.
