Children of Babel, Trace of Mali| 1hr : 13mins
Director: Patrick BÃ©hin | Producer: Arnaud Briquet
Focus Years: 2010 | Country: France
Following the traces of three traditional and visual Manding signs such as
calabash, cotton and ideograms, it will enable us to discover the foundations of
the Malian culture and its evolution through the times.
Meetings and testimonies will explain how Mali tries to integrate globalisation
without altering the durability of its ancestral culture.
Observations and thoughts would lead us to a wish of re actualisation (re
initialisation) of our societies for a fair and equal world system, vouching for
the respect of the practices which led mankind to the idea of humanity.
The movie deals with speech. The search of its role and function creates a
framework which illustrates its meetings made in its name. The characters
use this speech to underline three points. The official site of the movie: http://www.lesenfantsdebabel.info
