||RESONANCE, MALI (54')
GENRE: TRAVEL & CULTURE
"Resonance, Mali" is much more than than 'just another
film about an African country.' It sets itself apart from
other documentaries by meeting the challenge of linking a
poetic vision of Mali with a rigorous approach to reality.
Enriched by the beauty of the pictures and the music, the
text, by Tim Biggott-Smith, sets out to be a profound
meditation on the future of the country. That aim has
echoes in the contributions of those who will craft that
future: a simple peasant, a Tuareg rebel or the musician
Ali Farka Toure, friend of Ry Cooder. They all speak to us
of their hopes for this land of the Sahel.
