Buud Yam


In a moment of remarkable cinematic continuity, Buud Yaam picks up the story of Wend Kuuni and his adopted sister Pughneere 14 years later, featuring the same actors and locations as Gaston Kaboré’s debut feature. Whilst nearly two decades have passed, Wend Kuuni is still 

ill at ease in his adopted home and remains a source of tension within his community. When Pughneere is struck down by a mysterious illness, Wend Kuuni is faced with a perilous journey across Africa to find the only man who can save her. Drawing on a masterful use of colour, camera work and landscape, Buud Yam is one of the great films of world cinema. Presented in partnership with the Folk Film Gathering.
