Nokero is speechless about the wonderful film “Black Out” Please watch this trailer and show your support by sharing this important work with your online-network.
Only about a fifth of Guinea’s people have access to electricity. With few families able to afford generators, children have discovered the international airport, petrol stations and traffic roundabouts as unlikely places to revise. They are amongst the only places where they will always find light.
A literal and metaphorical journey towards enlightenment, “Black Out” shows the obstacles these children have to overcome to achieve their dreams in one of the world’s poorest countries.
With the children’s resourcefulness and determination acting as a metaphor for the country at large, the film asks whether Guinea can at last fulfill its potential and secure a better future for its people.
