Keita! Voice of the Griot

In Burkina Faso, an elderly griot, or storyteller, named Djeliba Kouyate appears before young Mabo Keita and begins telling him the origin of his name and its importance in the history of his country. Mabo is instantly fascinated and spends more and more time with the griot, neglecting his schoolwork and upsetting his mother, who insists he concentrate on his European education. The film alternates between modern scenes and dramatizations of a 13th-century epic.
