Le Griot du Métal


Ata Messan Koffi
Senegal, Togo, 2015

27'

Synopsis


Saint-Louis, Sénégal. Meissa Fall est un homme au destin lié au métal, vrai génie créateur mécanique, qui recycle des vélos pour en faire des objets d’art, chargés de sens et de symboles. Dans un rapport psycho-spirituel avec le métal, Meissa nous entraine par son truchement dans une expérience de l’image et du son, dans un voyage dans l’imaginaire des masques.

Tënk's film review


Meissa Fall is a self-taught artist at the heart of the outsider art scene in Saint-Louis in Senegal. "Griot du Métal" centres on his work, unmasking the spiritual and obsessive narrative behind his sculptures, with the mesmeric hum of his voice bringing out the focus on sound. This documentary is more than just a portrait: halfway through, the structure suddenly takes an unexpected, poetic leap. And this burst of formal freedom is the reason why we want to show you this unparalleled film.
