U.S. PREMIERE Filmmaker Chloé Aïcha Boro returns to her homeland, Burkina Faso, after the death of her uncle, killed while on a pilgrimage to Mecca. Boro documents the aftermath in her family’s compound as a rift about the estate develops between family members who embrace traditional Islamic law and those who would follow Burkina Faso’s official colonialist laws. What starts as a small family matter becomes, in Boro’s distinctively observant eye, a story about the role culture, heritage, and religious beliefs play in the daily life of a community. – Murtada Elfadl
