Bamako

A Feature film by Abderrahmane Sissako

Produced by Archipel 35 / Archipel 33

Release in France : 18/10/2006

    Synopsis

    Melé is a bar singer, Chaka, her husband, is without work. Their relationship is on the rocks.
    A court has been set up in the courtyard of the house they share with other families. Representatives from African society have brought a civil suit against the World Bank and the IMF, which they deem responsible for the dramatic state of affairs Africa now finds itself in.
    Between pleas and testimony, life continues in the courtyard. Chaka seems indifferent to Africa’s unexpected and novel determination to reclaim its rights.
