13 year old Waly has not yet been circumcised. He is a laughing stock at work and the shame of the neighbourhood. Even the girl he has fallen for has rejected him. What can he do…that’s Waly’s problem!
El Hadj Gueye is from Touba, Senegal. Theatre is his passion and he founded Gëm Gëm Africa (Believe in Africa) Theatre Company in 2003, which has exhibited shows in cities across Senegal and in many festivals, including the Negro Arts Festival. Waly’s Problem is El Hadj’s first short film.
