To celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2011, the Cinémathèque Afrique de l’Institut Français is presenting the Grandes Figures des Cinémas d’Afrique et des Caraïbes exhibition, to be inaugurated at the 9th Encounters of Bamako. Pride of place has been given to images related to a programme of five films to be shown at evening performances during the professional week. The aim of the project is to bring together people from the visual worlds of photography and cinema. The exhibition features work from two photographers with intersecting perspectives, giving us a glimpse of over twenty portraits of directors and actors who have contributed to, or are still contributing to, the history of African and Caribbean cinema.
