The story of Sundiata is told in part by a master griot in the film Keital. The griot teachs a young boy his own worth by sharing with him the story of his ancestor, Sundiata. The 1994 motion picture directed by Dani Kouyate is available on videocassette from California Newsreel. The film is in Jula and French with English subtitles.

A children's retelling of the epic, Sundiata: Lion King of Mali, was written and beautifully illustrated by David Wisniewki in 1992. It was published by Clarion Books.
