SYNOPSIS: Winner of the Grand Prix at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival and Senegal's submission to the Academy for Best International Film, Mati Diop's ATLANTICS is a haunting tale of love and loss.

Along the Atlantic coast, a soon-to-be-inaugurated futuristic tower looms over a suburb of Dakar. Ada, 17, is in love with Souleiman, a young construction worker. But she has been promised to another man. One night, Souleiman and his co-workers leave the country by sea, in hope of a better future. Several days later, a fire ruins Ada’s wedding and a mysterious fever starts to spread. Little does Ada know that Souleiman has returned.  

About Global Perspectives

This collection of exciting worldly films will make their Calgary debuts at Globe Cinema on the second Wednesday of each month. Take a journey around the globe!

While typically each film in the series is announced one month in advance, in order to give our audience the best idea of what to expect from our new series we have released the titles for the first four films. Single tickets to each film will be available for purchase one month in advance.

Buying a Series Pass is the best way to take in the whole series, guarantee seats at every film, and save money on movie tickets!
