FRA, Mali, USA 2006
118 min

In Bamako, Abderrahmane Sissako mixes intimist drama and political fiction. Caught up in the vicious circle of debt and structural adjustment, the African continent struggles for its very survival. Faced with this drama, representatives of the African non-trading company institute file a lawsuit against the international financial institutions. The lawsuit takes place in Bamako, in the courtyard of a house, amid the residents who go about their business, attentive or indifferent to the debates. Among them, Chaka and Melé. She is a singer in a bar, he is unemployed, their relationship disintegrates.
