DANCING THE TWIST IN BAMAKO
“A beautiful romantic love story. A dive into the past, punctuated by a multitude of hits from the early 60s whose fragrance of effervescent happiness is tinged with nostalgia and tragedy.” —Cineuropa
In Mali, circa 1960, young people are gripped with revolutionary fervor for socialist ideals and an equally driving passion for dancing the night away to American R&B music. In the midst of this heady environment, a young man and woman strive to be together as the old ways threaten the new way of life.
