This adaptation from an ancient oral legend from Mali is one of the most acclaimed and widely seen African films ever made. An Oedipal story mixed with magic, Yeleen is as visually stunning as anything from Hollywood. Set in the powerful Mali Empire of the 13th century, Yeleen tells of the journey of Niankoro, a young warrior who must comfort an evil sorcerer who is also his father. Niankoro uses his own magical powers to battle his father. The film follows him on his quest across arid Bambara, Fulani and Dogan lands and explores a cross-section of West African Cultures and folklore. Cisse's extraordinary use of landscapes and light produces a unique and striking cinematic style.
