      Try now, David, I added a new link. Most old uploads are not available for streaming yet I’m slowing changing every single link since they all got taken down.
      Thank you.

    Thanks for uploading. What a great film with thought-provoking themes, good acting, and excellent music. I have been to Senegal several times, including the region in which this film was made (Thies), and hope to go there again later this year.
