Aïda Mady Diallo: Karim and Doussou


Aïda Mady Diallo spent her childhood in France, her adolescence in Mali and studied at university in Uzbekistan on a scholarship. Trained as an agricultural economist, she has lived in Mali since 2003, where she works for an Internet service provider.  She has also written two novels, Kouty, mémoire de sang [Kouty, memories of blood] and No Title, both in 2002.

Synopsis of the film, Karim and Doussou

Karim and Doussou, husband and wife, are a typical Malian couple. They represent contemporary society with all the faults and qualities that anybody may possess. They have bouts of jealousy, greed, lying, deceit, dirty tricks when they feel the need. They are also capable of showing courage, mutual aid, perseverance, and compassion when necessary.
