The undisputed master of his photographic generation…
This fascinating documentary is a portrait of African photographer Malick Sidibe and a journey through Malian history, inspired by his iconic images. Sidibe’s snapshots from the late 50s to early 70s capture the carefree spirit of a youth asserting their freedom from colonialism in the early days of Malian independence. Boasting a fantastic soundtrack that features the best in Malian music, the film highlights a culture reflected through a camera lens, in a country rich in an artistic, musical tradition.
