Baobab

A Short film by Laurence Attali

Produced by Autoproduction

Production year : 2000

Synopsis

It all started with a dream: "It's time for you to try to explain the mysteries! Find the griot who'll bring you to me, and when you recognize me, circle around me three times, rub me with buttermilk, and let me know what you want. But be careful: don't forget the buttermilk!" That's how I was drawn into the boabab's spirit. It was in the year 2000. The year of the "Sopi". If the boabab was Senegal's emblem, through the tree, I should understand the country.

Baobab

Même le vent... (1999) - Trailer (French)

Directed by : Laurence Attali
Produced by : Autoproduction
Genre: Fiction - Runtime: 18 min
Production year: 1999

Un chauffeur de taxi en boubou et lunettes bleues roule à vive allure dans les rues de Dakar. À côté de lui, une jeune fille lit le journal, indifférente au monde extérieur. Dans le vieux taxi sans pare-brise, un compteur made in Moscou compte des unités irrégulières. Sur la banquette arrière glisse un saxophone doré. Le chauffeur évite tous les obstacles et la fille reste impassible. Alors il rompt le silence : Même le vent qui traverse, je le vois.
