Taamaden (“Traveler”) shows us two worlds: that of a number of West African immigrants who are making a living in Spain, and that of Bakary in Mali, who is preparing for a new attempt. These young men have one thing in common: they have regular contact with a mystical and religious clairvoyant. Switching smoothly between Africa and Europe, Cissé shows how African occultism finds a place in Europe via the smartphone, and how faith and hope can be as strong as harsh reality.
In French, Bambara, Wolof, and Spanish with English subtitles.
