In the Fall 1999, mAliWatch and the Centre National de la Production Cinematographique" co-produced "mAli: An Invitation to Travel". The project was initiated a year earlier by members of our organization, mAliWatch, deeply committed to presenting their own vision of mAli. All of us live in different parts of the world but we overcame the distance barrier by intensive use of emails which made our scriptwriting, fundraising and advertising activities possible. In Summer 99, two mAliWatchers traveled from USA to mAli and co-produced the video with CNPC. The production team included a mAlian director, camera-man, and crew from CNPC, as well as consultants from mAliWatch. All production and post-production including editing were completed in bAmAkOO.
