The Little Girl Who Sold the Sun La petite vendeuse de soleil 
1999, 45 min

A young girl Sili lives on the streets of Dakar with her blind grandmother. While all the boys around her sell newspapers, Sili must beg for her daily subsistence. But she is determined to change things around. Starting tomorrow, she will sell newspapers just like the boys. 

“I am interested in marginalized people, because I believe that they do more for the evolution of a community than the conformists. Marginalized people bring a community into contact with a wider world. /…/ I do not want to remain forever pessimistic. That is why I have fished out cases where man, taken individually, can defeat money. Think of Le franc. The hero of the film is going crazy because of a lottery ticket, but he manages to hold on because he has the power of dreaming. In La petite vendeuse de Soleil, all the protagonist wants is to sell her magazines, but money comes to subvert her plan. A rich man comes along, and a magazine that should cost 5 francs is sold for 500 francs. Thus, the rich man creates a problem, but she manages to escape this problem, because she dreams of something better.”
