In Senegal, they let their women decide, provided she comes with loads of Francs.

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Fonds Sud, a French program that aims at supporting films from the "South", Alliance Francaise of Hyderabad and the Hyderabad Film Club, in collaboration with the French Embassy in India, present a collection of nine films coming from Africa, Asia and Latin America.

These 20 years of the Fonds Sud have been dedicated to the 260 filmmakers supported by this program, who have overcome obstacles with their fighting spirit, and captured their dreams.

Hyenes is an adaption of the Swiss-German writer Friedrich Dürrenmatt's satirical play, The Visit. The theme of this movie is the human greed. The story shows how neo-colonial relations in Africa are "betraying the hopes of independence for the false promises of Western materialism," and how Africans have been corrupted by that materialism.

Linguère Ramatou, a wealthy woman returns from abroad to the desolate village of Colobane, her birthplace. Many years before, she had been seduced by a young man, impregnated, and abandoned for a wealthier wife; she was then mercilessly ostracized by her neighbors. Now "as rich as the World Bank," Linguère offers lavish gifts and huge sums of money to the villagers, in exchange for the death of her ex-lover. They accept the deal.
