I actually saw one of Rossellini's films at the FESPACO festival in Burkina
Faso, this past February. I saw BALA, a documentary about a family that
makes the instrument called BALFOUR (similar to a xylophone).

He is a very nice man with an apparent sincere interest in African cinema.
He had developed an ongoing relationship with a particular family in
Burkina Faso. This relationship spanned more than a decade.

If you ever get the opportunity to view his film, don't miss it!

P.S. Taale, I am the friend of Yolisa Duley, Hawaii by way of South
I thoroughly enjoyed your documentary which you showed in Burkina Faso.
I've heard that you are planning to bring your work to Hawaii.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.
