Winner of the Grand Prize at FESPACO 1995, Africa's pre-eminent film event, Guimba is a dark political satire in the guise of colorful fairy tale. Set in the mythical kingdom of ancient Mali, Guimba tells the story of a despot who uses his dark magical powers to rule his kingdom.Guimba is a tyrant who rules over the town of Sitkali with an iron fist. Using a combination of sorcery and cruelty, he terrorizes people into submission. His one weakness is his son, Janguine, a randy, perverse dwarf whospends his days satisfying every appetite. Janguine is betrothed to beautiful Kani, but prefers her more voluptuous mother Meya. Guimba supports his son's obsession by exiling Meya's husband. It is a decision he will come to regret.Director CheickOumar Sissoko has created a breathtaking film whose costumes and sets rival classic Hollywood epics. Guimba represents the best of a new kind of African Cinema, a story of brutality, lust and despotism which is both timely and timeless.
