A Film about the unifying Power of Music

Mali, like many more places in this world those days, stands 2015 for fanatic murdering or so called terrorism. But for us it stands for outstanding music.I had such pleasure to record at "Festival sur le Niger" the powerful music the islamist wanted to shut down for ever.

Mali is often regarded as the cradle of today’s Blues and Jazz. For centuries music has strengthened Mali’s cultural identity, musicians are holding strong positions in society.
MALI BLUES is a musical journey, discovering the country’s rich musical culture and it’s threat by radical Islamists.

“If you would have to tell the story, how would you begin?
This is one of the question Philip Scheffner have asked each of the witnesses during the shooting of the documentary “revision”. Each time, I, m really amazed how the same story appear to have so many different appearance and conceals so many truth.
On June 29th, 1992 a farmer discovers two bodies in a corn field in the North East of Germany. Police enquiries lead to the fact that the dead men are Romanian citizens. During the attempt to cross the EU border, they have been shot by hunters. The hunters claim that they had mistaken the people for wild boar. Four years later, the trial begins. It will never be proved, which of the hunters has fired the fatal bullet. The verdict: not guilty. German Press Agency dpa reports: “From Romania, no one has arrived for the rendition of judgment.”

“ Nigeria, to put it blatantly, has the reputation of a no-go-turf and scares off even experts, including those from other African countries. Yet, there is a small group of people, who grasp every possible opportunity to go to Nigeria. This rather strange phenomenon is hard to explain since one goes astray when portraying Nigeria. This very fact was the starting point of this film. "
Dorothee Wenner: Extract from Directors note
DramaConsult is the name of an international consulting company which was invented for this documentary. That was necessary because the services that explore and evaluate the striking reality of German-Nigerian business relations through concrete case studies, are not yet available in the market. “
Director: Pascal Capitolin/ Justine Bitagoye

A documentary Film of Pascal Capitolin et Justine Bitagoye about the story of Prince Louis Rwagasore, symbol of the African emancipation and of the Burundian independence.
Burundi is one little country in the grand lac region in Africa. The young film industry has just started to bring her contribution to the fragile peace of the country. While a longer stay in Burundi, I’ve been asked to assist by a new film project. The theme packed me immediately.
The story of Prince Louis Rwagasore reminds in the african context to Patrice Lumumba and feels like just waiting to be filmed. Rwagasore had the vision of a true independence for his country Burundi. He fighted with political wisdom and boldness against the belgium colonial authorities who have been placed by the society of the nation as fostering force that ruled the african country until it achieves its independence 1962. Louis Rwagasore was murdered on the night of October 13, 1961 when he and his party were incontestably elected at the first parliamentary elections of Burundi.
