La vita quotidiana di una grande ballerina divisa tra Africa ed Europa. Una storia di integrazione e tradizioni. Un racconto raro e prezioso.

The project:
We are a team of italian professional filmmakers who loves Africa.
We are making a documentary about the life of a great african dancer who lives in Belgium from more than 20 years.
Her name is Mama Adama Camara but she is also known as Mama Africa. Every year she comes back to Guinea, her birthplace, to meet her big family and to make a ‘stage’ of african traditional dance with her european students. The Focus of the documentary is the daily life of Mama Africa during her staying in Europe and Guinea-Conakry combined with the reconstruction of her great career. The story is elevated by the interview of many of the great African artists who have worked with her as Famoudou Konaté, Sourakhata Dioubate, Naby Eco camara, Sekou Sano et les merveilles de Guinée. The spoken languages of the movie are French and Sousou and we want to subtitle it in English, Italian and German.

Here you can see the Teaser 2.0 of this project. Realized after the African shooting.
Check it out and Enjoy it!!



About guembanara

Guembanara is a collective born in 2008 that gathers projects about Africa from different moviemakers with experience. Individually we come from media- activism stories, laboratories for the multimedia education in several conflicts zones, documentary productions and enquiries. We do many other projects: tv shows, exhibitions and video clips.. but this is the connection point between our professional life and that personal path that in a way or another brought us to Africa. It has been more than ten years now that we are telling about this country and its habits, we are living with his population putting together our competence and militant spirit. Guenbanara is the circle of our “movie-relation”.
