Synopsis

A serious discussion of globalisation cunningly disguised as an entertaining feature film. Bamako (which means 'the Court') puts the World Bank and its allies on trial for what they've done to Africa. And meanwhile life goes on all around, from a love story to an incongruous mock Western set in Timbuktu.
