Noir 360, the podcast that celebrates international Black film in all its diversity, is thrilled to present Rashid Bahati’s conversation with Rahmatou Keïta, a Nigerian journalist, writer and film director.

Keïta’s career in film began in 1990 and she has since become an accomplished filmmaker, winning the prestigious 7 d’Or for L’assiette anglaise (2005) and the Sojourner Truth Award for her first feature film, Al’lèèssi… Born in Niger, Keïta is of Fulani, Songhai and Mandingo heritage.
