Bamako

From the African nation of Mali comes this free-form courtroom drama pitting African civil society against international financial institutions. As numerous real witnesses (farmers, teachers, etc.) testify to the crippling effect the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund have had on African debt, fictional everyday life goes on around the open-air mock trial. Weddings take place, families argue, people watch TV in their apartments. In French and Bambara with English subtitles. 115 minutes PG.
