I think Keita is from Guinee and therefore I'm not certain
if we are talking about the same documentary.
Anyway, a beautiful documentary with Mamady Keita
as the master-drummer was produced in Brussels by a Belgian filmmaker.
I think she worked with the CBA.
So, why don't you contact the Centre Bruxellois d'Audiovisuel
(CBA), 18, rue Joseph-II, tel.32/2/218.40.80 ?
