Attention: New venue! The screening series „African Perspectives »has moved its venue. From now on, the series takes place at the Goethe-Centre Windhoek, Fidel Castro Str. 1-5, Windhoek.

The life of Ramata, married for 30 years to the Minister of Justice, radically changes when she meets, apparently coincidentally, a mysterious hustler free of all attachments.

Her Ramata is a striking woman in her fifties who lives in an elegant neighbourhood of Dakar, married to a Minister of Justice with whom she is preparing to celebrate their thirtieth wedding anniversary.
Living in a golden cage, she is forced to confront this unsatisfactory image of herself when she meets Ngor Ndong, a person free of all attachments……
