World Nomads: African Cinema: Homage to Ousmane Sembène
NEW YORK  •  French Institute Alliance Française  •  Ongoing
Uncompromising critic of colonial regimes. Astute chronicler of urban Senegal—Ousmane Sembène inspired an entire continent’s cultural awakening through both literature and film. Close friend of Sembène, Dr. Mamadou Diouf, director of Columbia University’s Institute for African Studies, moderates an evening to include personal reminiscence, readings, a screening of Sembène’s seminal film Borom Sarett, and an original sound score performed by DJ Spooky.
