Dear Friends,

Are these films made in the language of the country.
And are there subtitles?
Are subtitles printed in English?

I believe all the English titles are in English. I saw Guimba, and it is in
a native Malian language, with English subtitles. It was beautiful, but I
found the story hard to follow, even with the sub-titles. I'd like to see
it a second time. I heard that Au Nom du Christ was in French, without
