Robert Guédiguian (Gloria Mundi, The Snows of Kilimanjaro, Marius and Jeannette) sets his youthful 1960s love story Mali Twist against the backdrop of the febrile atmosphere of postcolonial Mali, amongst youngsters dancing to rock and roll music and the twist. Alicia Da Luz Gomes and Stéphane Bak co-star as a spirited young woman who wants to escape her arranged marriage, and a young socialist whose paths collide in the capital, Bamako. Mali Twist tells a story of dreams of political renewal and independence.
"A dive into the past, punctuated by a multitude of hits from the early ‘60s whose fragrance of effervescent happiness is tinged with nostalgia and tragedy."
