Taafe Fanga (Skirt Power)
A griot in present day Mali tells a story about women in an 18th century Dogon village. Fed up with male arrogance, one captures a powerful Albarga mask and terrorizes the men into assuming traditional women's roles. The humorous results convince everyone that women should be respected as complementary, yet equal, to men if society as a whole is to advance.
This film is a joy and a very funny comedy about assumed roles for men and women. Production quality is outstanding and the scenery is beautiful. ~Mike
