    Subject

    "When I'm in Burkina Faso or some other African country, I try to make comparisons and I'm struck by the similarities. I think every African should make a road movie these days; he shouldn't stay only in his own country, but should make a long traveling shot. My film is traveling shot that started in Senegal and made the tour of Africa. Wars, joys and suffering are the same for all Africans. We are all Christians or Muslims, and we're all fetishists as well. That's modern Africa."
