    Synopsis: In Sylla family exists one of the last guardians of the genealogy: she is Grandmother Penda Diogo Sarr who knows the heroic deeds of the ancestors and all the important names in the lineage. According to President and poet Senghor, the only dead man is the one whose name is no longer pronounced. In order to fight against the destruction of their ancestors’ word, the two filmmakers decided to switch from an oral to a videotaped tradition.
