Filmmaker Jihan El Tahri traveled to Guinea to retrace the biography and career of filmmaker Costa Diagne. She met his widow and daughter, she visited the center for film production that has long been shut down, but she also met other filmmakers who studied at the VGIK, including Kalifa Condé. She will also present an assemblage of sequences shot in Guinea’s capital Conakry.
