  • Au cimetière de la pellicule (Thierno Souleymane Diallo, France / Senegal / Guinea / Saudi Arabia. 2023) 93’
    The 1953 film Mouramani by Mamadou Touré is believed to be the first film ever made in Guinea. Interested in the conditions of its production – and the whereabouts of a film print – Thierno Souleymane Diallo sets out to find people who can help him. Equipped with a video camera, microphone and headphones, he travels through the country, sometimes on the back of a donkey, sometimes barefoot, and films everything he experiences on the road and during his conversations with archivists and those who remember the period. The film turns into a journey through Guinea’s film history that takes him to deserted cinema halls and abandoned film archives.
