À Bamako, les femmes sont belles...


Christiane Succab-Goldman | 1995 | France | 65 minutes | Betacam SP

They are graceful indeed. A strength emanates from them wherever they come from and whatever background. They look languid but is their way to hide their dynamism. They are a mixture of modernity, tradition and humour.
Seydou Keita, the photographer, has fixed their image on films since 1945. His pictures punctuate every sequence of the film in which they reveal a little of themselves.
The story also has marked their memory : the independence, the relations with the Eastern socialist countries, the bloody events of 1991 when they had to fight armed soldiers to overthrow a dictator and discover democracy.
