by Berni Goldblat

Filmmaker and critic

Born in Sweden to a Swiss mother and a Polish father, Berni has lived in Burkina Faso for over 20 years and produced and directed numerous projects from West Africa. His mixed upbringing and multi-cultural experiences cultivated a curiosity for experiences other than his own, and this has shaped many of his projects – including Wallay.
