Foli – There is no movement without rhythm

Rhythm embedded in daily activities. Thomas Roebers and Floris Leeuwenberg captured the incredible rhythm of the Malinke people from the village Baro in Guinea. This movie documents how rhythms is part of their daily lives.

The directors have this to say about their piece:

“Life has a rhythm, it’s constantly moving.
The word for rhythm ( used by the Malinke tribes ) is FOLI.
It is a word that encompasses so much more than drumming, dancing or sound.
It’s found in every part of daily life.
In this film you not only hear and feel rhythm but you see it.
It’s an extraordinary blend of image and sound that
feeds the senses and reminds us all
how essential it is.”
