Keïta! l'héritage du griot = The heritage of the griot /
Based on an important work of African oral literature, the Sundjata epic. When a djéliba, a master griot or bard, arrives mysteriously at the home of Mabo Keïta to teach him "the meaning of his name," the boy and griot are inevitably brought into conflict with his Westernized mother and schoolteacher, who have rejected African tradition. The griot reveals to Mabo the story of his distant ancestor, Sundjata Keïta, the 13th century founder of the great Malian trading empire.

Tasuma: The story of Sogo Sanou, aka Tasuma, a former French soldier who was a member of the African troops known as the Tiralleurs Senegalais, which fought hard for France.

When the money does not arrive, Sanou is put in prison. The women of the village rally to set him free. Sia: Kombi is a poverty-stricken city dominated by a tyrant king. In order to bring back prosperity, the king is advised by his priests to make the traditional human sacrifice of a young virgin to a mystical snake god.

Struggles and revelations follow as the villagers confront issues of honor, corruption and power.
