France, 2015, 25 min. Director Simon Panay.
A small village lost in a dusty desert in Burkina's bush. Two times a week passes the train. Various food items and water bottles thrown by the passengers while passing by constitute the main income of the village, and the only source of water during dry season. Different portraits follow each others. The older one s have known slavery in the service of France, the young dream of distant horizons.
Waiting for the (t)rain is the second Documentary Film project of 21 years old director Simon Panay. The film was shot in Africa.
