With Drums Beating

Tambours battant

Directed by Izza Génini
France, 1999


On Saturday, the wandering musicians would come under our windows to collect a few coins. Amongst them the Black Gnawas with their multicoloured costumes, their big drum hanging from their neck and their hat whirling on top of their head were at the same time frightening and fascinating.
