Mali - movie

Mali films, In 1961, the Mali National Film Institute was established to create a production of short films and newsreels to inform the illiterate population. Many Mali filmmakers were trained in the Soviet Union and then employed at the Bamako Film Institute, which in the late 1990's has one of the richest film environments in Africa. Directors include Djibril Kouyaté (b. 1942), who made Mali's first feature film, Le Retour de Tiéman (1970), Falaba Issa Traore (b. 1928), Souleymane Cissé, Kalifa Dienta (b. 1940), Adama Drabo (b. 1953) and Abdoulaye Ascofare (b. 1945). Based on the Malian reality, their films often revolve around political and socially important issues. After the dictator Moussa Traorésfall in 1991, director Cheick Oumar Sissoko (b. 1945) took over the leadership of the National Film Institute and established the production company CORA films, which has helped many new talents on the way. Sissoko, who took over the country's culture minister in 2002, debuted in 1987 and won the first prize at the FESPACO film festival in 1995 with Guimba (the tyrant).
