LFF 2016 PREVIEW: WULU


'A powerful debut feature'
Fabien Lemercier, Cineuropa

'Malian cinema has found a promising and intriguing new voice'
Pamela Pianezza, Variety

'Coulibaly is a talent to watch'
Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter

It'd be one thing pencilling in films to represent global diversity in cinema for my 2016 London Film Festival lineup - a noble thing, at least. But it's another to know that those films are as good as Daouda Coulibaly's debut feature, Wulu. Already a prominent and popular title on the fall festival circuit, the drug smuggler thriller is set to build on the acclaim it received in TIFF's Discovery slate with a showing at LFF just a week from now. Exciting to see a new director making such a strong, positive impression - one to watch indeed!
