As part of the Festival de la francophonie, the Swiss Embassy has the pleasure to invite you to the screening of the film Beyond the horizon. It will take place on Monday, 30 March 2020 at 7 pm at the Centre for African Culture in Oslo. All interested persons are warmly welcome. The entrance is free of charge. The film was directed by Ms Delphine Lehericey. It is an adaptation of the eponymous novel by the Swiss writer Roland Buti. The latter, which has been awarded numerous literary prizes and has been translated into seven languages, evokes the difficulties of the peasant world, against the backdrop of a scorching summer that has remained in the memory of many Europeans (1976). A young boy named Gus is about to leave childhood and his innocence as his family breaks up and farm animals perish in the heat and drought. These disruptions lead to numerous upheavals.
