SIA, THE DREAM OF THE PYTHON

ADIFF is and has always been a festival motivated by culture. The ADIFF GREATEST HITS end of the month series is our modest contribution to Black History Month in the tri-state area. Sia, the Myth of the Python will open the three day film series as a way to set the tone of cinematic excellence we want to put forward in our events.



Set before colonial times Sia, the Myth of the Python is a rare film that still shines among the now rich and diverse production of African films. Based on the VII century myth of Wagadou, the film portrays life in a kingdom where a despotic king reigns. The costumes, the conflict, the acting and a strong social commentary that still resonates today have made Sia, the Dream of the Python a timeless film not only in the context of African cinema but in the context of international films that bring meaningful information into the imagination of audiences worldwide.
