One of the contemporary cinema’s finest artists, Souleymane Cissé has created a remarkable, epic portrait of Africa today. Waati is the story of Nandi, a South African girl living under apartheid. Yearning to be free, Nandi leaves her homeland and heads west; her journey takes her to Mali, Côte d’Ivoire and Namibia, moving from childhood to adulthood while she discovers a continent that is still searching for an identity.
