Clouds Over Conakry

Director: Cheick Fantamady Camara
Country: Guinea
Year: 2007
Running Time: 113 min.
Language: French and Malinke

At the age of 25, the artist-caricaturist BB finds himself faced with an impossible choice. Son of the inflexible imam Karamo, the guardian of his village’s ancestral traditions, BB is chosen to be his father’s worthy successor. But he refuses to accept his destiny, preferring to work independently and live life to the fullest with his love, the beautiful young computer scientist Kesso. This is a very impressive film that finds a new approach to capturing the tradition-versus-modernity theme so frequently seen in African cinema.
