Moolaadé by Ousmane Sembène ( Visual )
20 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 915 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the village of Djerisso, women tend to their work and children, while men debate in the mosque and make the rules. One day, four young girls appear on Collé's doorstep seeking sanctuary from their coming 'purification' ceremony. Years ago, Collé refused to allow her daughter to undergo the procedure. She takes them in and declares a moolaadé, a protective spirit, or safe zone that will bring a terrible curse upon anyone who breaks it. Thus begins a standoff that escalates into a bloody showdown between tradition and modernization, men and women, and progress and stagnation. Confronting the village elders and red-robed priestesses who perform the ritual, Collé has eyes saddened by experience, but made righteously fiery with the hope that she can reduce the misery of future generations. At 81, Mr. Sembene has made a masterpiece, both a critique of traditional forms of authority and a celebration of the warmth and dynamism of African village life

Guimba un tyran, une époque = a tyrant in his time ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1995 in Bambara and held by 3 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

Spielfilm, Drama. - Melé ist Sängerin in einer Bar, ihr Mann arbeitslos. Sie teilen sich mit anderen Bewohnern den Hinterhof eines Hauses in Malis Hauptstadt Bamako, der zudem noch von Hühnern und Ziegen bevölkert wird, durch den Hochzeitsgesellschaften ziehen und wo regelmäßig der große Waschtag zelebriert wird. Und mitten in diesem bunten Kosmos des afrikanischen Alltagslebens findet eine Gerichtsverhandlung statt, in der Vertreter der afrikanischen Zivilgesellschaft Klage erheben gegen die Machenschaften des internationalen Währungsfonds IWF und die Entwicklungspolitik der Weltbank, die mit ihren Projekten und Planungen das Land zugrunde richten. Doch während der Prozess spannungsgeladen mit Zeugenberichten und Plädoyers voranschreitet, geht das Leben im Hof munter und heiter seinen normalen Gang. Hier vermischen sich die Alltagsgeschäfte mit der sonst so gedämpften Sphäre der exklusiven Gerichtssäle der Hauptstadt
Die Herrschaft der Röcke ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1997 in German and Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Bei einem Dorffest entbrennt ein Streit zwischen Männern und Frauen. Anlass für einen Geschichtenerzähler zu berichten, wie das Dogon-Volk einmal die Geschlechterrollen vertauschte. Die Dogon-Frauen rebellierten einst gegen die Männer und zwangen sie, ihre Arbeit zu erledigen und Frauenkleider anzulegen. Fortan fläzt die weibliche Dogon-Welt männlich faul durch den Tag. Die Herren verzweifeln schnell an ihren neuen Aufgaben. Der Unmut wächst schließlich auf beiden seiten, und Alltäglichkeiten erhalten einen ebenso lehrreichen wie grotestken Beigeschmack. Adama Drabo aus Mali inszenierte eine alte Sage als amüsanntes Lehrstück über die immer noch starren Rollen von Mann und Frau in der afrikanischen Gesellschaft. (HÖRZU 22/2000)
