Woubi Chéri

Hosted by Inside Out Film Festival

The documentary Woubi Chéri explores the love life of a few homosexuals in Ivory Coast. The Woubi and the Yossis (the crazy women and their men in the local gay dialect) of the Ivory Coast tell their stories and tell us about their daily life through humour, emotion, revolt and tradition. They share their joys and their sorrows, lifting the veil on a “gay” life as it has never been shown to this day.

Woubi chéri est un documentaire qui nous fait partager la vie amoureuse de quelques homosexuels de Côte-d’Ivoire. Les Woubi et les Yossis (les folles et leurs hommes dans le dialecte homosexuel local) de la Côte-d’Ivoire s’y racontent et nous racontent – entre humour, émotion, révolte et tradition – leur quotidien. Ils nous font partager leurs joies et leurs douleurs, levant le voile sur une vie “gay” telle qu’elle n’a jamais été montrée jusqu’à ce jour. Précédé par deux courts métrages et suivi par une discussion.

The film will be preceded by two short films and followed by a Q&A.
