Last shows


“The Last Picture Show” series received several distinctions and was shown in personal and collective exhibitions in France and abroad.

Despite a strong, committed, public-supported film culture, cinemas on the African continent are closing one after the other. Some countries have none left. However some are still open in this in-between space, torn between some melancholic state and obstinate hope.

Laden with souls and collective memory whether in Bamako, Ouagadougou or Kara, each cinema has a history of its own, but they all share something: a deep bond with a person/film-maker fighting to revive the place, a projectionist and cinema enthusiast who has turned into an obstinate caretaker, fully aware that if man creates spaces then in turn, some spaces contribute to building mankind.
