Writer-director Abderrahmane Sissako builds on themes from his previous film Waiting For Happiness in this slow-burning drama, centred on a trial in the Mali village of Bamako, pitting the locals against the might of the World Bank. As lawyers and witnesses make impassioned speeches against the greed of the West, daily life continues apace in the neighbourhood, with little hope of redemption.
