Mali Yaya Coulibaly Puppeteer and Magician
by Christian Lajoumard

Mali is the country that saw the birth of the art of puppetry. Yaya Coulibaly, one of the greatest living puppeteers, is the heir to a centuries-old tradition. With his troupe Sogolon he is one of the most brilliant representatives of African culture and traditions. We discover him in his “house museum” among thousands of puppets, in his daily life and through his magical shows. A film to dream and abandon.
