Abderrahmane Sissako and Damon Albarn recounts the path of a Malian fetish animist, a Boli, transporting us from Africa to Europe, from the XIIth century to the XXIst.
Le Vol du Boli thus depicts African history, from the Mandinka Empire and colonisation, to this date. With this extraordinary project, Abderrahmane Sissako and Damon Albarn give us completely new insights into the world. “ I want to make sure the thread of the story is clear so I can share it with others and present it to audiences. Without a cry. It must be beautiful, harmonious, moving and questioning.” explains the Mauritanian film director.
