“The Rhythm Of My Life: Ismael Sankara”

Written and directed by Franck A. Onouviet & Marc A. Tchicot, "The Rhythm Of My Life: Ismael Sankara," is an experimental film that combines fiction and documentary filmmaking to tell the story of Ismael Sankara ("Ish"), a Miami, Florida-based rapper, who travels east, to Africa (spending time in Burkina Faso and Gabon specifically) and, in a kind of utopian Diasporic unity, collaborates with local DJs, as these talented artists from diverse backgrounds are able to connect via their mutual passion for music.

Further explanation/clarification from the filmmakers: “Music is what brought all of us around this project and the will to push the boundaries and experiment prompted us to take another route than a classic documentary. Obviously we’re not re-inventing the wheel here… We set out on purpose to mix genres (fiction & documentary), despite working on their stories and making interviews, we asked ourselves how to capture the energy and the randomness of these encounters. Therefore in the fiction part, we twisted the reality with our own interpretation of how they met. The intro and the outro serve in this documentary as a metaphor of all the real moments that took place before, during and after they met.“

The film was toured the international film festival circuit in 2011, 2012 and is now available to watch online, as I was informed this week, embedded below:
