Roteiro: Jerome Nabonsewend Yameogo
Vovô, um viúvo de 70 anos em cadeira de rodas, parece esquecido pela sociedade. Sempre ligado ao seu jornal que é seu único companheiro do dia, ele vê o desaparecimento deste último ameaçado pelo avanço da tecnologia. Sua neta de 10 anos, Mini, apaixonada por música como o avô, resolveu apresentá-lo ao mundo digital.
The technological and the analogue world intersect in this fictional short film by Jerome Nabonsewend Yameogo, the third short in the Burkinabé director's career. Starring a grandfather and a granddaughter, the film draws a parallel between the old and the new, through this contrast. With newspapers threatening to go out of circulation, Papi needs to learn from her granddaughter how to communicate through technology.
