Code inconnu récit incomplet de divers voyages = Code unknown : incomplete tales of several journeys by Michael Haneke( Visual )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in French and German and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composed almost entirely of brilliantly shot, single-take vignettes focusing on characters connected to one seemingly minor incident on a Paris street, Haneke's film, with an outstanding international cast is a revelatory take on racial inequality and the failure of communication in today's increasingly diverse European landscape

La genèse Genesis by Cheik Oumar Sissoko( Visual )

2 editions published in 1999 in Bambara and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Genesis is given a new spin which recasts a famous story by relocating it in the nation of Mali and using a cast of African actors. Covering Chapters 23-37, it recounts the story of Esau whose birthright is stolen by his brother Jacob in exchange for a plate of beans. This allegorical tale combines an accurate interpretation of the Biblical story with relevant allusions to African history and culture
Guimba : un tyran, une époque = a tyrant in his time by Cheick Oumar Sissoko( Visual )

2 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in Bambara and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Told in a traditional oral presentation, Sissoko frames his film with the appearance of a griot, a traditional African storyteller who passes down the "wisdom of the ancestors," looking to the values and legends of the African past for inspiration and guidance in reconstructing well-governed, self-sufficient nations. Here the legendary past of Mali (West Africa) provides an allegory of present-day African politics as it tells the story of the downfall of Guimba the tyrant. Guimba throws his city into conflict and chaos when he allows his randy, dwarf son to reject an arranged marriage to the slim local beauty in order for him to pursue the girl's larger, married mother. The tyrant then sets his own eyes on the girl, making the situation even worse
Faro : la reine des eaux by Salif Traoré( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in Bambara and French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Na zijn studie keert Zanga terug naar zijn zeer traditionele geboortedorp aan de Niger om uit te zoeken wie zijn vader is
Bamako, la cour Das Weltgericht von Bamako( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in German and French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In einem Hof in der Hauptstadt von Mali findet eine öffentliche Gerichtsverhandlung statt, bei der Vertreter der Zivilgesellschaft die Weltbank und den IWF anklagen, das Land durch ihre Finanzpolitik zugrunde zu richten. Der mit leichter Hand inszenierte, dramaturgisch raffiniert strukturierte Film untergräbt das Gerichtsfilm-Schema durch ein filigranes Geflecht fotografisch starker Momentaufnahmen, die den ideologischen Überbau mit der Wirklichkeit der Menschen in Bezug setzen. Der auf der Grenze zwischen Inszenierung und Dokumentation angesiedelte Film ermöglicht dabei den Perspektivenwechsel, Afrika einmal nicht durch westliche Kolonialklischees zu betrachten.

Doch während der Prozess spannungsgeladen mit Zeugenberichten und Plädoyers voranschreitet, geht das Leben im Hof munter und heiter seinen normalen Gang.
