There are a cardboard box, a blanket by way for screen, two stems planted in the box are crossing from top to bottom. They are used to unroll images, cut out in a comic strip; these images are stuck down to one to the other to form a thick roll; a candle is placed behind this strip (like a lamp with mirror, already). Maimoun wakes up at night, when his parents are sleeping, to stick images one after the other. He is making his movie in secret. He transports his cardboard and several rolls of images. Images that he shows to other children.
