The first part of the evening will feature a series of short films highlighting the uniqueness of surrounding landscapes. Whether documentary or fictional, they confront different points of view or the photographic medium in order to provide the viewer with a spectrum of vision as rich as it is varied.
The journey will then continue to Malian lands thanks to the incomparable Yeelen, signed Souleymane Cissé. A true spiritual pilgrimage, we follow the young Nianankoro, destined to cross Mali to escape his father's murderous desires. A landmark film in the history of African cinema, Yeelen is a direct reference to the initiatory journeys that populate our collective imagination, and another way of looking at filming a landscape, as an escape to regions that cinema constantly gives us to (re)discover with a new eye.
