Afrique occidentale : Mali
Scope and Contents
A broad panorama of various locations throughout Mali is offered here, including San Sangha, Mopti, Tombouctou (Timbuktu), and the Bani and Niger Rivers. One event featured appears to be a celebration where some men play drums while others display their weapons. In other scenes a group of men capture a manatee, and people ride horses and camels. Several mosques are filmed, their buttresses and columns showing the influence of Sudanese culture.
