Djibril Diop Mambety
1973/ Senegal/ 1h 35min
In Touki Bouki, a classic of African cinema, director Djibril Diop Mambéty mixes surreal fantasy with naturalistic observation to tell the story of post-independence Senegal.
The young lovers Anta and Mory want nothing more than to escape Dakar as they imagine what life would be like in France – but they run into a series of unforeseen obstacles. Filled with sharp wit and humor, the film is a unique experiment with cinematic form and cultural references.
Restored in 2008 by The World Cinema Foundation at Cineteca di Bologna/L’Immagine Ritrovata in association with the family of Djibril Diop Mambéty. Restoration funding was provided by Armani, Cartier, Qatar Airways and Qatar Museum Authority.
