The Mockingbird is proud to be co-hosting a unique screening of Sissako’s 2002 film ‘Waiting for Happiness’. This is a film that explores the themes of rootlessness, displacement and alienation in a globalised, migratory society, through the story of young Abdallah. 

This poetic film subtly explores the tension between tradition and progress in Abdallah’s hometown, the Mauritanian town of Nouadhibou (West Africa), as he returns to visit his mother before leaving for Europe. Unable to speak the local language, the film is less about the dialogue but rather centres on the spellbinding imagery that the film’s landscape provides. Film presented in its original French audio with English sub-titles.

This screening will be followed by a short Q&A exploring some of the themes cinema techniques and wider significance of this film. After the film screening we can enjoy the rest of the evening in the surroundings of The Mockingbird's bar. 

The film is presented as part of a continuing initiative by University of Birmingham for cultural engagement, funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council.
