In times of social distance and the barrier gesture to protect one's neighbor, expression becomes an invaluable act to preserve our humanities. In Mbas mi, the director invites Goo Mamadou Ba to lend his voice to revive an essential text by Albert Camus. In the twilight of memory island, an incantatory voice rises. Carried by the surf, it changes according to a memory. From the alleys dotted with man-lanterns to the tops of sentinel baobabs, the words of "La Peste" resonate.
