Simplice Ganou, maker of the beautiful Bakoroman (2011) and The Koro of Bakoro, The Survivors of Faso (2017) - both shown in our online programme - is a uniquely empathic and sensitive filmmaker. The Unknown starts almost as a child’s game: can I make friends in Winterthur? It then becomes a psychological thriller, a drama, a search for redemption - and ultimately a poignant portrait of what it is to feel like a stranger in a new place.
