Adama Drabo – Ta Dona AKA Fire (1991)

A forestry engineer pushes for reforestation measures, against the will of his selfish superiors, and embarks on a search for a mystical healing plant linking him with the ancestral knowledge of his people.

“Incorporating dashes of local color into a contemporary tale of ancient mysticism and modern corruption, Ta Dona strikes an appealing balance between old and new.”


“This exciting film is composed like a painting, one stroke after another. Images and scenes reveal a very precise portrait of the geographic, social and intellectual environment of present-day Mali.”
