Description

AS FAR AS I CAN WALK

A Refocus Film Festival Selection

This modern immigrant story is a re-imagining of a traditional medieval legend in which a Ghanaian couple goes to Europe to find a better life only to land in a refugee camp in Serbia. Strahinja is beginning to get his footing among those in the camp, volunteering for the Red Cross playing on the soccer team, and making friends. Nevertheless his biggest struggle seems to be rekindling the flame he once had with his wife Ababuo who still yearns to follow her dream of being an actor. When she suddenly goes missing, Strahinja goes on an epic journey to get her back, risking his safety and freedom in an inhospitable and unwelcoming land. With arresting visuals and an award winning lead performance, this hidden gem is a playful and unexpected adaptation.

Winner: Grand Prix Crystal Globe, 2021 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival
