Aristotle's Plot Le complot d'Aristote( Visual )

The film reflects the young director's refusal to be pigeon-holed as a maker of "traditional" films set in rural settings. The film partly operates on the level of "story," but only minimally. The film is set in a nameless allegorical southern African town
Les saignantes The bloodettes( Visual )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in French and English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A superbly photographed, edited and scored film about two young femmes fatales who set out to rid a futuristic country of its corrupt and sexually obsessed powerful men. In this stylized, sci-fi action-horror hybrid, Majolie and Chouchou navigate a sordid world of sex, money, politics and death. They are on a mission to change the destiny of their country, but their task is made difficult by a formidable foe. Revelling in excess, Les saignantes is one of the first science fiction films to come out of Africa"--Container
Blanc d'ébène et Quartier Mozart( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in Danish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le président( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this intelligently rendered mix of mockumentary and drama, the disappearance of the President of Cameroon a few days before the elections is a sign that the 'spectre' has taken over. Young people are becoming restless, intellectuals are debating national issues, prisoners are making political plans and people are asking difficult questions. With this film, which contains the stories of succession, independence and revolution, director Jean-Pierre Bekolo presents a very different African narrative, one which attempts to interrupt notions of genre, not just by mixing fiction and reality but also in its treatment of form and imagery." -- Internet
La grammaire de grand mere (aka - grandma's grammar( Visual )

1 edition published in 1996 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Seated in a bar, the late Senegalese filmmaker Djibril Diop Mambety (1945-1998) speculates on the nature of cinematic storytelling. Somewhat in his cups, he plays with the words 'grammaire' (grammar) and 'grand-mere' (grandmother), basically arguing that one is not required to conform to pre- established rules and that the filmmaker is free to develop his/ her own grammar, just like grandma's stories are not always the same. Behind the camera is Jean-Pierre Bekolo from Cameroon
