Nigerian farmer Mocktar comes to Essakane, a dusty gold mining camp in Burkina Faso, seeking work. Haunted by a tragedy-laden past, Mocktar stoically adapts to the horrid working conditions of his fellow miners. Enter the beautiful widow Coumba, who shares Mocktar's endurance but dreams of a better life. Director Laurent Salgues also penned this independent drama about greed and redemption, a 2007 Sundance Film Festival competition entry.

Plot

Reves de poussiere tells of Mocktar Dicko, a Nigerien peasant, who goes to look for work in a gold mine in northeastern Burkina Faso. He hopes to forget the past in this prison, where the bars are made of dust and wind.

Production

The film was the first full-length feature by Salges. The project quickly secured Avance sur Recettes and GAN Foundation funding, and gained further French and European funding since the director had obtained Burkina Faso citizenship through marriage. The film was a France-Canada co-production between Athenaise – Sophie Salbot and Corporation ACPAV inc. – Marc Daigle. The associate producer was Sekou Traore of the Burkina Faso company Sahelis Productions.

Reception

A reviewer says the "opening shot reminds you of a choreographed musical�only there is no music, only silence and the sounds of workers’ tools". Another critic says "Cinematographed by Crystel Fournier, images are hauntingly dreamlike. Wind-swept dust is a recurrent motif". The film was nominated for the grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in the World Cinema - Dramatic category. It won prizes at Tarifa 2007, Amiens 2006 and Namur 2006.
