MALI BLUES (director: Lutz Gregor) will be shown in competition at TIFF/ Toronto International Film Festival in September. TIFF is one of the most important film festivals in the world, universally regarded as an ideal platform for filmmakers to launch their careers and to premiere their new work.
Following Fatoumata Diawara, shooting star of the global pop scene, MALI BLUES is a musical journey, discovering the country’s rich musical culture and it’s threat by radical Islamists. On our way we meet other committed musicians, like Bassekou Kouyaté, Master Soumy and Ahmed Ag Kaedi. The screenings at TIFF will take place on September 13, 14 and 17, in the presence of the director Lutz Gregor.
