CHF 16.90 / EUR 15.70

Abderrahmane Sissako grew up in a mudwalled house in Bamako, Mali's capital city. Now one of Africa's most celebrated filmmakers, he returns to that modest family home to take on no less than the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. In the courtyard once presided over by his late father, Sissako gathers lawyers, judges and witnesses to put globalization itself on trial. With Bamako, Sissako has made an audacious structural adjustment to the narrative of blame and amnesia that so often colours how rich countries view Africa. Poverty, the film insists, is not Africa's curse. On the contrary: as witness Aminata Traoré says, Africa is a victim of its wealth. (C. Bailey, Toronto Filmfestival)
