    A couple of short films by Mansour Sora Wade (of Senegal) that would be
    suitable (for adults too!) include "Picc Mi/Little Bird" and " Fary
    l'anesse/Fary the Donkey"- both are 20 min. or under.

    " Picc mi" is a story of two destitute boys who escape
    predatory demands of adults to spend one day of freedom

    " Fary l'anesse" is a tale of a man led into folly by
    his pursuit of the perfect woman. When he thinks he has
    finally found her, she turns out to be a donkey. They are in Wolof, but
    available with English subtitles - I believe California Newsreel has both
