One-off

Though Sissako’s films have become world-famous, the man himself remains shrouded in mystery, marked by the paradoxes of exile. Delve into a unique director’s intimate world.

We meet Abderrahmane Sissako throughout 3 key locations of his life – Mali, Mauritania and Russia. In those emotionally charged places he meets up with 3 friends of his – Elia Suleiman, Haïle Gerima and Tony Gatlif. With them, he exchanges stories and confidences.
Their discussions revolve around three of his movies – Bamako, Waiting for Happiness and October – as well as the three movies that sparked his passion for directing: Antonioni’s The Passenger, Tarkovsky’s Andrei Rublev, and Fellini’s La Strada.
Discover the original director’s personality, a true citizen of the world at heart – a sensibility that he captures in all his work.
