"The most politically urgent film in the 2006 NY Film Festival combines a bracing indictment of the world financial system with a subtle glimpse at daily life in Africa" (A.O. Scott, The New York Times). Directed by Mauritanian filmmaker Abderrahmane Sissako (Waiting for Happiness), Bamako's experimental narrative veers between the story of a young nightclub singer (Aissa Maiga) and her boyfriend (Tiecoura Traore) on the verge of a break-up, and scenes of a court case against the IMF and World Bank being held in the courtyard of their apartment complex. In French and English with English subtitles.
