Stones’ Travels (Faraw Ka Taama), UK PREMIERE
Dir. Seydou Cissé
Mali. 2012. 11min. Colour. Bambara with English subtitles.
Miracles are occurring in a village, stones are whipped about in the wind. Further mysterious events lead us to the view of a magnificent bridge. Based on the animist legend of the travels of stones, Cissé’s film exquisitely brings to life Malian cosmology whilst paying homage to all the workers sacrificed in building the Markala Bridge.
Seydou Cissé is a graduate from the Studio national des arts contemporains – Le Fresnoy, in France. Stones’ Travels is an assured student film in which he seeks to probe the relationship and similarities between animation film and the world of animism.BUY TICKETS
