Agadez: a town in the desert. Its streets are narrow, its houses built entirely of mud. Bachir and Salamatou work as reporters for a small local radio station: Nomade FM in Agadez. They wander through the town interviewing its inhabitants. It’s fasting time, so religion plays an even more important role in daily life than it normally does.   France/NE/CH 2003 Regie: Christian Lelong 75 min, 35 mm, Farbe, OF mit dt. UT


A small town in Burkina Faso: A society that lives in the rhythm of heartbeats creating their future. Knowing how to love one another, anywhere in Africa – this also means recognising our own love through a mirror. “Focused on pictures of a heartless continent and reducing the people to anonymous and underfed silhouettes with flatulent looking bellies as the media tend to present the African people, one forgets that there are millions of beating hearts which swing exactly the same like everywhere in the world.” (Africultures) France/Ger 2008 Regie: Christian Lelong Maria Silvia Bazzolli 92 min, 35mm, Farbe, OF mit dt.
