Doulaye, une saison des pluies

Doulaye, A Rainy Season

When he was five years old, the young Henri-François Imbert was extremely impressed by a friend of his father’s named Doulaye Dianoko. Twenty five years later, now a documentary film-maker, he travels to Mali with the ambitious aim of renewing his friendship with the man he had not seen since he was a young child. Filmed on a mixture of video, Super-8 and 16mm, this subjective documentary refuses to follow a linear structure and instead takes its cue from the obsessions of the director. Despite the loose script and a tiny budget, Imbert’s acclaimed film manages to create a sensitive and universal journey of discovery.
