ANN: Web Documentary and Webinar on the history of resistance against slavery in Mali

I am delighted to announce that I have released a new web documentary, Bouillagui: A Free Village, which tells the history of the inhabitants of the village of Bouillagui in Kayes, Mali who liberated themselves from slavery at the beginning of the twentieth century.

The film, completely shot on location in The Gambia with a full Gambian cast, captures the personal conflicts that arise when Modou (Christopher ‘Tijan’ Smith), a deported refugee, returns to his home country after having lived without papers in Europe for five years.
