Coulibaly played the lead role in the 2004 film Moolaadé from the Senegalese writer and director Ousmane Sembène. Coulibaly starred as Collé Gallo Ardo Sy, her husband’s second of three wives, in a village in Burkina Faso, who uses moolaadé (“magical protection”) to try to protect girls from female genital mutilation (FGM). Coulibaly herself has been a victim of female genital mutilation. The critic Roger Ebert gave the film four stars (out of four), writing “for me the best film at Cannes 2004, a story vibrating with urgency and life. It makes a powerful statement and at the same time contains humor, charm and astonishing visual beauty”. Coulibaly won the Best Actress award for her role as Collé, at the Cinemanila International Film Festival in 2005. This film had an important role in raising wider awareness of FGM, and Coulibaly has continued to campaign on this issue since then. Her campaign against FGM has been documented in the film Africa on the Move: The Power of Song (2010).
