Synopsis by Andrea LeVasseur
African-born French filmmaker S. Pierre Yameogo directs the gentle comedy Moi et Mon Blanc (Me and My White Pal). Serge Bayala plays Mamadi, a black foreign exchange student in Paris who works as a parking attendant. He develops a friendship with white co-worker Franck (Pierre-Loup Rajot). When they get caught holding the evidence of a drug deal gone bad, they take off for Mamadi's home country of Burkina Faso. Me and My White Pal was shown at the Toronto Film Festival in 2003 as part of the Planet Africa program.
