A film adaptation of one of the great oral epics of the Bambara people, set during the powerful Mali Empire of the 13th century. Tells the story of Nianankoro, a young Bambara warrior destined to destroy a corrupt older society, the secret Komo cult, and with it his father, and, inevitably, himself. The climactic flash of light which floods the screen at the film's end ushers in a new purified world order and captures the Bambara belief in time as circular, not linear, always returning to that initial "brightness" which created the world.

Extremely interesting indeed.However,this film shockingly refuses to tell me why the father hates his son so much and why he wants to kill him specifically,unfortunately.This missing detail of the film is extremely significant.Too bad the writer of this film didn't think so,but i digress.
