New film


By Thierno Souleymane Diallo 2023 Documentary 93'

In 1953, Mamadou Touré directed the film “Mouramani”, a film considered as the first ever made by a black French-speaking director.

However, the mystery remains. No one knows where to find a print, neither if one even exists.

“The Cemetery of Cinema” is the search for that film, also an ode to cinema, both the kind we watch and the kind we make.

A road-movie from east to west, north to south, a film full of love, humor and tenderness towards his peers and the new generation to come but also a quest as Souleymane marches with a sign demanding “Mouramani”’s return…
