Eché Janga

BULADÓ tells the magical-realistic and heartwarming story of a small family in the countryside of Curaçao. As the different mentalities of rational father Ouira and spiritual grandfather Weljo start to clash, eleven-year-old Kenza is determined to find her own path into adult life.

Kenza (11) lives in a house on a salvage yard together with her father Ouira, her grandfather Weljo and stray dog Tjenko. The two men in her life are opposites: her father is a police officer and a rational man, while her grandfather favours the spiritual world connected to the history of the islands. Kenza hovers in-between these two worlds until the sadness about the loss of loved ones, opens her eyes and she becomes receptive to the mystical, comforting traditions of her grandfather.
