The daily difficult management of the relationship between Senegalese and mosquitoes considered the cousins of populations. The female cousin, the anopheles is the most afraid of.

Moussa Touré approaches the subject of mosquitoes and malaria with humour and derision to sting our complacency.

The theme of mosquitoes and malaria might seem a tad'easy' for a documentary, but Moussa Touré approaches his subject with humour, derision and, what's more, he uses it to conceal another set of issues, judo style. Toure is out to sting our complacency.

Mosquitos, mosquitos. Con los testimonios de víctimas y técnicos, un punzante análisis de la pobreza, la salud y la vida diaria de la población senegalesa con estos insectos, principal causa del paludismo. Y un paralelismo - no sin humor y burla - entre los mosquitos (cousins) que pican y los políticos.

Director: Moussa Touré
