Amma, les aveugles de Dakar
Mamadou Sellou Diallo
2006 - 52 min - DV Cam - Couleur - France, Sénégal

Young girl Astou, grand old man Mawdo, the child Kine, they all belong to the begging blind who storm the great mosque in my neighbourhood every Friday for the Prayer. They are well organized and use their disabilities, songs and discourses to collect more alms.
This film intends to capture their fight and penetrate the secret of the blind, as Baudelaire did in his poem entitled "The Blind".
