    • Synopsis
    • A little voice is heard from inside the womb of a pregnant woman : « Mother, give birth to me ! » “A child who can speak from his mother’s womb can give birth to himself” replies the mother. And so a little boy is born, cuts his umbilical cord and declares : “My name is Kirikou”.
      The tiny Kirikou is born into an African village upon which a sorceress called Karaba has cast a terrible spell : the spring is dried up, the villagers are being ransomed, the men of the village have been eaten up by the sorceress.
