The Rhythm Project

In Baro, zentral Guinea, verläuft das ganze Leben sehr rhythmisch, wie dieser tolle Kurzfilm zeigt. Die holländischen Macher kommen dabei ohne große Worte aus, der Rhythmus spricht für sich, sozusagen :-) Absolut sehenswert!!!

Dutch sibling filmmakers Thomas Roebers and Floris Leeuwenberg recently released Foli, an extremely well-crafted 11-minute short film that gives us an overview of the role of rhythm in the life of the rural Malinke village of Baro in central Guinea.
World-class djembe masters like Famoudou Konate hail from the area around Baro. Roebers and Leeuwenberg make this come alive through deft editing, killer sound, and their choice to not include any omniscient narration.
