Bienvenue à Marly-Gomont / The African Doctor (2016 – 93 mins),

In 1975, Seyolo Zantoko, a graduate doctor from Kinshasa, grabs the opportunity of becoming a country doctor in a small French village.
When they arrive in Marly-Gomont, Seyolo and his family quickly become disillusioned. The village inhabitants are afraid; this is the first time they’ve ever seen African people. But Seyolo is determined to suceed and will do everything he can to win the villagers’ trust.

We would like to reiterate our sincere gratitude for your loyalty to the Alliance Française Glasgow and to thank you for your understanding of the impact this unprecedented crisis has had on us and our activities. 

The Alliance Française Glasgow is a local charity, therefore 95% of its income is generated by your subscription to all its activities. Like all other institutions and individuals alike, we are going to suffer greatly from this crisis and we certainly hope all our students, members and guests will be in a position to continue to attend their lessons as well as take part in our cultural activities, and thus support the Alliance Française Glasgow’s staff during this difficult period.

We are organising this event for free, but in order to support the AFG and it staff, you can donate here
