Damouré Zika in Venice embarks with Mariama Hima in a history of gondolas.

Mariama and Damouré, two cousins, are in Venice looking for a relic-or fetish-lost a long time ago, as in one of Gentile Bellini’s famous paintings. Mariama shows Damouré the city, taking him to a boatshed to see how gondolas are built (a process very different from the way a dugout is made) or talking with him about those strange creatures that live on water, the Venetians… Moving then from the Grand Canal to the Niger River, the two mischievous cousins reveal to us that the relic is none other than the ritual ax of Dongo, the spirit of thunder…

A « caprice » invented in Venice by Jean Rouch and his two friends, who came to the festival in 1985 to present a film made by Mariama Hima, Falaw (which won an award).

IT

Mariama e Damouré, due cugini, si ritrovano a Venezia per cercare una reliquia – o feticcio… – persa molto tempo fa, come in uno dei famosi teleri di Gentile Bellini. Mariama fa così conoscere la città a Damouré, portandolo in uno squero ad esaminare la fabbricazione delle gondole (ben diversa da quella delle piroghe), o discutendo con lui di quegli strani esseri che abitano sulle acque, i Veneziani… Passando poi dal Canal Grande al fiume Niger, i due maliziosi cugini ci fanno scoprire che la reliquia altro non è che l’ascia rituale di Dongo, il genio del tuono…
Un « capriccio » inventato a Venezia da Jean Rouch e dai suoi due amici ed interpreti venuti a presentare alla Mostra del 1985 un film di Mariama Hima, Falaw (che vinse un premio).
