Storyline

Sango Malo contrasts two views of education. The traditional headmaster represents a rigid, "Eurocentric." curriculum designed to produce docile colonial administrators. Malo, the radical young teacher, emphasizes the practical skills needed to build a self-reliant rural community. The film illustrates Brazilian educator Paolo Freire's celebrated distinction between an education which the ruling class uses to inculcate its values in students' minds and one which empowers students to shape their own destiny.

not so long ago, a picture of daily Africa!
2 January 2003 | by (Yaounde, Cameroon, Central Africa) – See all my reviews

Bassek Ba Kobhio has done few movies! Sango Malo stands out as his most successful one. It brings out the reality of Black African routine. This story not only shows the challenges Sango is faced with as a man and as a teacher, but much more as an African.

Ba Kobhio's contribution to enhancing the professional careers of Sango Malo's cast is outstanding!

The quality of the shooting is yet another story. Little emphasis is placed on the quality of SOUND and ART.

Well notice that Bassek has not shot any movie in nearly ten years though he presides festivals in Cameroon and collaborates with the continentally-prestigious FESPACO. Hope he's taking his time to do it much better in the near future.
