Script: Mansour Sora Wade


A film about sexuality and traditional ‘devices’ used by woman to seduce their men. Kine is a “disquette,” a young trendy girl who only wears Western clothes, who realizes that her husband only has eyes for traditional Senegalese women. She is then initiated into the art of seduction by a “dryanké,” a woman who is an expert in this art as a Senegalese tradition. Aida Souka is a subtly anti-Western tale about a journey through the strategies that Senegalese women use for seduction.
