BAMAKO
MALI/FRANCE 2006 Director: ABDERRAHMANE SISSAKO
Are Western financial institutions responsible for African poverty? Is
globalization the cause or the solution of economic injustice? Sissako
artfully ponders these questions with a comic but serious, inquiry
staged as a mock trial held in the courtyard of a house in Mali. The
plaintiff is African civil society and the defendants are the World
Bank and the International Monetary Fund, accused of bringing about
the continent's doom. Winner of the Best French Language Film award at
France's Lumihres. (118 min)
