La Lutte, a documentary roadmovie directed by Marlijn Franken, will be screened at the Trenton Film Festival on June 14 at the Mill Hill Playhouse.

About La Lutte

In this documentary hopscotching two continents, two seemingly unrelated stories meet and merge, celebrating the power of will over circumstance and the universal values of friendship and daring. A beach wrestler from Norway pursues his dream of taking part in La Lutte, traditional wrestling from West Africa, full of rituals and seldom seen by foreigners. Meanwhile, African refugees to the Netherlands struggle with the difficult Dutch legal system.
