A journey through Malagasy tales and legends to discover Madagascar.
A journey through tales and legends. A voyage between reality and imaginary in Madagascar. A subjective and impressionistic vision, tinged with humor and tenderness. The central character of the film is the oral tradition itself which passes down the wisdom of the ancestors, the "ear's inheritance", through legend and folktales...to watch a reality ...to listen to fantasy...
