Faraw! Mother of the Dunes (1997) DVD5
Zamiatou (Aminata Ousmane) is a proud woman who by rights should be overwhelmed by misfortune. Feeble-minded and helpless after a prison sentence, her husband is probably a victim of torture. Her two small sons argue and fight over their tiny meals; the government isn't processing the father's pension money and news comes that even working civil servants are not being paid. To find food to keep the family alive, Zamiatou is prepared to do anything, except sell her beautiful daughter to the debauched French settlers who sleep with their maids. When all seems lost, she visits a man who once loved her. He sympathizes and gives her a donkey while his own wife watches unhappily from a distance. He begs Zamiatou to play a violin-like instrument for him once again, but she tells him he had his chance years ago. With the donkey Zamiatou can carry good spring water to thirsty miners, and she earns some money. It's hard work, but Zamiatou will do what is necessary to keep her family together...
