Early Bird: Festival at Five

Adapted from a novel by acknowledged French writer Laurent Mauvignier, Keep Going, a neo-western doubling as an emotional journey set against mighty-skied badlands, restores your faith in the power of family ties.

Sybille, a divorced mother, can’t stand watching her teenage son Samuel slip into a violent and meaningless life. She is also struggling with her own demons, past and present. As a last resort, she takes Samuel on a long journey across Kyrgyzstan. Accompanied only by their two horses, mother and son face the magnificent yet hostile natural environment, its dangers, its rewards, its people and above all each other.

"When I finished reading Laurent Mauvignier’s novel, I could not stop wondering if the journey I had just experienced was not one I should make with my own mother. I’m 42 years old and for the first time I felt that urge. I did not feel the immediate desire to adapt the book, perhaps it was too intimate. Would I dare go there? /.../ My producers and I discovered that we all shared a firm belief that this journey should not only be my own, but a journey for everyone … whether mother or son." (Joachim Lafosse)

Eldorado gives a stark picture of the ruthless treatment that remains insensitive to human tragedy: a crisis caused by economic imbalances, which turned the rich countries of the North into an El Dorado for those less fortunate to try and reach at all costs.
