With director Laurent Chevallier’s voice-over comments in the background, this documentary is a sort of “declaration of passion” that we are invited to assist, through amazing pictures that strive to show the reality of it subject.
This is an account of a fascinating human adventure, that of the tour made by the "Troupe d’Art Acrobatique de Guinée" (Guinean Company of Acrobatic Arts) throughout their Country. It all started on the 1st of March 2000 when Pierrot Bidon (founder of famous Arkaos Circus and manager of the troupe) gave a start to the journey.
From Conakry to N’zerekore, via Kindia, Labe and Kankan, the company gets deeper and deeper into the luxurious African nature and share the experience of technical hazards as well as the emotions of a unique artistical adventure that tells an enchanting story.
The troupe’s peregrinations are scattered with juicy anecdotes, fascinating encounters with different ethnic groups and peculiar characters such as the late lamented saxophone player Momo Soumah Wandel.
The DVD also includes a secondary film showing the making of the documentary, as well as further bonus material.
A rare documentary !
