We’re proud to present FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION, an ongoing showcase featuring some of 2017’s most impressive, critically acclaimed, and soon to be nominated films that you may have been remiss in watching during their initial runs. Now it’s your time to catch up and be part of the conversation!

 

In Senegal’s first-ever entry to be submitted for the foreign film Oscar nomination, a singer races against time to secure  emergency funds after her son is in a terrible accident. Grand  Jury Prize Winner at the Berlin International Film Festival.

 

Félicité is a proud, free-willed woman working as a singer in a bar in the Congo’s capital Kinshasa. Her life is thrown into turmoil when her 14-year-old son gets into a terrible car accident. To raise the money to save him, she sets out on a breakneck race through the streets of electric Kinshasa – a world of music and dreams. Grand Jury Prize winner at the Berlin International Film Festival, FÉLICITÉ is also an official selection at the Toronto International Film Festival and New York Film Festival, and will be this year’s official entry for Senegal for Best Foreign Language Film for the Academy Awards.
