MALI, FRANCE AT WAR
Director(s): Nathalie PREVOST, Olivier JOBARD – Writer(s): Nathalie PREVOST Contact Print page
Filmed in these times of political turbulence which mark the end of an era for France and the failure of the modern state.
In Bamako, Timbuktu, Gao, Kidal and Mopti, this film gives a voice to those in Mali who have experienced and suffered from the story of ten years of crisis and its roots.
Young people make up 75 percent of the population in Mali, one of the poorest countries in the world. They are pushing for renewal and the overthrow of the established social order in the context of competing models of governance: decentralization, separatism, sharia, traditional order… alongside Western-style democracy.
