LIEUX SAINTS

There is a Cineclub in a poor district of Ouagadougou, consisting of not much more than a few benches and a small TV set. Teno speaks with the club`s cinephile operator, an instrument maker, and other inhabitants of the quarter who especially enjoy watching karate movies here but african films as well. A film maker`s reflexion on the status of cinema in Africa, circling around thoughts upon politics, everyday life, piracy and the heritage of the griots, the West African heralds.
