Didier Mauro
1997 - 52 min - Betacam SP - Couleur - France

During nine months, the film follows the artist Ramilison and the Mpihira Gasy Tarika Ramilison Fenoarivo opera company. It is a sacred art old of half a millennium in Madagascar. The opportunity to meet the Madagascan reality on the path of the farmers artists life, poor and famous, who share their everyday life with the sociologic majority: poverty, whereas the local elites plunder the country since the independence. Mpihira Gasy’s works, poetic and rebel, state for a "good leadership", protection of the environment, birth control, and question the established order and the culture of corruption.
