  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.
