Issaka has died. His brother arrives to Berlin to take care of the body and repatriate it to Burkina Faso.

Competition / Argentine Official Competition
Premier mundial

Panke could stand as a brief ode to survival; a very careful filigree about the melancholy of immigrants, made with a both convincing and unattached tone. The main character has nothing but the memory of his mother in Burkina Faso and his brother who just died. His brother, however, demands things. The body needs to be recognized before the authorities of an unknown city, file the necessary papers without really speaking the language, and take care of the arrangements to return the body to its home country: a whole prosaic annex of death with rules that become urgent amidst the pain and disconcert. The almost sole character of this singular film reflects on the weight of being uprooted as he sets on a trip by foot towards an unlikely situation of truce on his tribulations. DO
