Summary
Three Senegalese short films that adapt the ancient African art of storytelling to the modern medium of film. Le franc (1994) is a parable about the plight of everyday Africans buffeted by the changing winds of the international monetary system. Picc mi (1992) (begins 00:46:24) is a story of two destitute boys who escape the predatory demands of adults to spend one day of freedom together. Fary l'anesse (1989) (begins 01:02:03) is a tale of a man led into folly by his pursuit of the perfect woman; when he thinks he has finally found her, she turns out to be a donkey.
