Directed, shot by Simon Coulibaly Gillard

At night, the young boy Ama and his companions travel through the bush of Boli Bana. A herd of huge and at the same time benevolent cattle accompanies them. By day, the young girl Aissita is the centre of attention of Boli Bana village. A witch has arrived for a ritual: for Assista this is the beginning of adulthood. It is a nomadic and mystic world that comes into being through the eyes of these children. A Fulani childhood in Burkina Faso.

BOLI BANA

Autor Simon Coulibaly Gillard

Öösiti käib noormees Ama oma kaaslastega läbi Boli Bana põõsastiku, neile järgneb hiiglaslik loomakari. Päeval on aga Boli Bana küla tähelepanu keskmes neiu Assista. Saabub nõid rituaali läbi viima: Assista jõuab täiskasvanuikka. Laste silme läbi avaneb nomaadide müstiline elu.
