Baara 1978
A young Malian country boy works as a "baara", a porter in Bamako. One day he makes friends with a young engineer who takes him under his wing, helps him out of trouble with the police and finds him a job in the factory. The engineer who studied in Europe, tries to apply his liberal ideas in the factory and struggles to survive on his meager income. He takes on the union, under the factory owner's control, and enters into conflict with the factory management...

Set in a modern city rather than a mythical past or traditional village, Baara offers a portrait of African life in the growing political and economic tensions of urban Africa, that is not often seen on the cinema screen.
