African nation Senegal has shortlisted its Oscar 2021 International feature entry and it’s Mamadou Dia’s ‘Nafi’s Father’.
The submission had previously not been reported and it’s only the third ever time that the country has sent its entry for the Academy Awards competition.
‘Nafi’s Father’ is a drama film about a family conflict. It had its world premiere at the 2019 Locarno Film Festival and is still seeking US distribution.
