    There are so many films which are suitable for children, but I would
    propose for instance:

    Yaaba and Le Cri du coeur (Heart's Cry) by Idrissa Ouedraogo,
    Burkina Faso

    Ballon d'or (is it Golden football in English?) sorry I don't remember
    the name of the director

    Halfaouine (Child of the Terraces) by Ferid Boughedir, Tunisia (for

    Nyamanton by Cheick Oumar Sissoko, Mali

    Minka by Mohamed Camara, Guinee

    Many of them are in distribution by California Newsreel, Ballon d'or is
    distributed by BFI in Europe but I don't know about US.
