Wend Kuuni ★★ God's Gift 1982
A fable for modern times set in Burkina Faso before the coming of Islam or Christianity. A mute, memoryless child is found by a peddler and adopted by the peddler's village. One day the boy finds a body hanging from a tree. Shocked, he recovers his speech and tells the story of his tragic past, when he and his mother were cast out of their own village. When his mother dies, the boy is bereft of family and tradition. Without these ties to his history he loses both speech and memory. In More with English subtitles. 70m/C VHS . Serge Yanogo, Rosine Yanogo, Joseph Nikiema, Colette Kabore; D: Gaston Kabore.
