Winners of the “Je suis malien” Video Contest

Charge d’Affaires Andrew Young awarded prizes on January 14 to the two winners of the “I am Malian” video contest. The competition, which took place in November and December, challenged young Malian filmmakers to produce 3-5 minute videos on the theme of peace and reconciliation.

The winners are Habibou Diaou, director of “Living together”  and Adama Malle, director of “Ould my friend”.

In addition to prizes, the duo will participate in two regional workshops in Dakar and Ouagadougou to hone their directing skills. Salif Traoré, director of the “Faro, Goddess of the Waters,” is overseeing the project and serving as a mentor to the two young winters.
