A film that's high on my to-see list, assuming it comes my way this year, or soon thereafter; screening in the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Film Festival, Senegalese filmmaker Moussa Touré’s La Pirogue (The Pirogue), left Cannes without any distribution, which I'm not terribly shocked by. The filmmaker isn't exactly a household name on the international film scene, even though he's been making films for over 20 years; and the subject matter and POV the film takes are likely of little interest to audiences outside of continental Africa.
