La Vie Sur Terre: Life on Earth

Loading...
A film about the significance of the start of the 21st Century for people still struggling to enter the 20th. Abderrahmane Sissako's solution was to improvise a 'fictional documentary' out of daily life in Sokolo, his father's village in Mali near the southeastern corner of Mauritania. He then overlaid these vignettes with readings from Aimé Césaire ... Behind all of this, he weaves the melancholy tones ["Folon"] of the great Malian tenor, Salif Keita and music by other artists.

How Samba Became Viceroy (Mali) [electronic resource]

This is the story of Samba and the legacy of the four braids, each representing one great truth. Captured and brought before the king, Samba resisted telling the secrets until he realized that the alternative was death. But when he revealed the last of his secrets, that a leader deserves no honor if he is not also a friend to his people, the king understood the message and made Samba his viceroy.

Dakan [electronic resource]

The first feature film on homosexuality from sub-Saharan Africa, Dakan (it means "destiny") was met with angry protests and heated debate when it was shot in the director's native Guinea. The film is a contemporary African reinterpretation of the age-old conflict between love and social convention, the story of two men who by coming out become invisible to their society. The men try to deny their sexual orientation to please their families, but eventually accept it, and each other, as their destiny.
