Hotel of Dreams (0+)

Denmark, 2005, colour, 59 min.
Director: Helle Toft Jensen
After 25 years in Europe, Jeannot returns to his native Senegal to realise his childhood dream of building a HOTEL in the heart of the coastal village of Popenguine.
The village has been subjected to foreign overfishing and drought. There is need for economic development – but is tourism the answer? Opinions differ. Values are put to the test. BLACK and WHITE are set in motion in Jeannot’s soul and in the little community, which is subjected to the entry of global tourism.
