WORLD PREMIERE ( 2018)
Somewhere between the wars of yesterday and the wars of tomorrow, Karim and Kader find themselves living in a slum outside a major metropolis. Promised stable employment, education and housing, they came, along with thousands of other men, to help rebuild a city ravaged by war. Kader dreams of a better life for his two daughters and his pregnant wife; Karim, of a regular apartment "with a kitchen, bathroom, windows and linoleum on the floor" for his newly arrived wife, daughter and son. But dreams turn to nightmares as they find themselves stuck in the mud of a world the gods of administration and history do not fully recognize. In La Folie, Wilson paints a searing portrait of lives lived on the edge, and shades a vital, lyric and very human allegory for all people and populations in transition.
