The Malian director Abderrahmane Sissako talks about his new film Bamoko and its impact in the west:

There is a perception in the west that African people are not aware of international politics. When the west talks of Africa, it talks of poverty, sickness, wars, but never talks of the people themselves having a view on what is happening. I wanted to show that African society may not be organised, but it is conscious.
