Design of film poster and website.

Bambara Blues is a dynamic film about Ami Diarra, a griot (traditional narrator) in Mali who uses the oral tradition to educate the community on the dangers of HIV/AIDS. Because of her respected position as a griot, Ami Diarra has access to the local population, but the authorities do not seem to take her seriously as they will only collaborate with NGOs.
