Bréhima Sissoko is the heritage guide at the Fort of Medine in the Kayes region of Mali. For nearly three decades he has worked to preserve this historical site, restoring the crumbling building, collecting historical stories and documents, and guiding visitors through the history. Now he’s training his son Boubacar to take over. In ‘Medine, The Heritage’ by filmmaker Andrey S. Diarra we witness this cultural passing of the torch, as knowledge, insight and a sense of duty is passed from the older to the younger generation.
Saï Diouck comes from a varied West African background and in turn takes a mixed, multi-faceted approach to her own future. She personifies a modern, cross-national young African and runs a portfolio of careers. We meet her in Libreville, Gabon, where she is a shop owner, restaurateur, DJ and is setting up a new philanthropic foundation. ‘Making Her Future’ by filmmaker Amedee Pacome explores her story to reveal her motivation, drive and compassion as well as her determination to bring light into the world.
