-MOVIE OF THE WEEK- Touki Bouki (1973)

This week's pick is a film by Senegalese filmmaker Djibril Diop Mambéty. A beautiful picture mixed with fantasy and naturalism, inspired by the French New Wave. The imagery, the music and journey completely sucks the audience into the world Mambéty has created. A picture that is clearly made by a poet. This film and the filmography of Djibril Diop Mambéty in general, is one of the most important voices of the African cinematic history.
