As Far as I Can Walk

CANADIAN PREMIERE Grand Prix Crystal Globe – Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, Czech Republic – 2021Official Selection – Montpellier Film Festival – 2021 Strahinya and his wife, Ababuo, both 28, left Ghana at the beginning of the migrant crisis.They managed to reach Germany but were deported back to Belgrade. Serbia may not be Germany, butStrahinya does his best to start a new life. He works hard to secure asylum, trying out as a football playerfor a local club and working as a volunteer for the Red Cross. The process, however, is lengthy andAbabuo, a passionate woman aspiring to become an actress in London, feels unfulfilled in their life. Onenight, a new group of Syrian refugees arrive, on their way to Western Europe. One of them is Ali, acharismatic left-wing activist. Ababuo initially mocks him, but, the very next day, leaves Serbia with him,providing no explanation. Strahinya sets off along the Balkan migrant route for completely differentreasons than anyone else: for love. A re-imagining of the medieval Serbian epic poem BanovichStrahinya in which contemporary African migrants take the place of Serbian national heroes. Urgent andtimeless at the same time, this adaptation raises questions about identity, tradition, race and love. * Country of production: Serbia, Luxembourg, France, Bulgaria, Lithuania
