Kibidouwe from Burkina Faso and his friend Tommy from Tyrol represent the encounter of two cultures. The mask rites in Tyrol, particularly at the ‘Imster Schemenlauf’, look very similar to the funeral celebrations in Burkina Faso, at least at first sight. The film takes a second look and presents impressive pictures of the masks and dances of the two ‘tribes’, it shows its parallels and differences and indicates by interviews what there really is behind those masks.
