Directorial duties on the documentary feature Visage(s) d’Afrique (lit. “Face(s) of Africa”), which Pol Cruchten was getting ready to shoot before his death in July 2019, have been taken over by Fabrizio Maltese. Initially, Maltese was meant to serve as DoP on what was billed as a coming-of-age tale shot in Africa. Luxembourgish production outfit Red Lion, with renewed support from the FilmFund Luxembourg, decided to hand the reins of the project over to him, after they had begun preparing the movie together with Cruchten.
Visage(s) d’Afrique will be an insightful window to a land that has, up until now, rarely been shown in cinema: Mauritania, the birth place of filmmaker Abderrahmane Sissako (Timbuktu [+lee también:

This is the fourth documentary feature by Fabrizio Maltese, following Twenty-Five Palms (2015), 50 Days in the Desert [+lee también:

Visage(s) d’Afrique, written by Stephan Roelants and Fabrizio Maltese, has been filming since Wednesday 22 January 2020 in both Senegal and Mauritania.
