Filmmaker Samba Gadjigo will present and discuss a special screening of the acclaimed documentary about the “father of African cinema,” Ousmane Sembene (1923-2007). As Sembene’s biographer and friend, Gadjigo literally takes part in the history of the manual laborer who set out to be the storyteller for a new, independent Africa and produced, starting in the 1960s, such rich and controversial masterworks as Black Girl, Xala, Ceddo and Mooladé. Admirer Danny Glover has declared: “Sembene! is an invaluable tribute to a true hero, and an essential chapter in the history of Africa, of the world, and of storytelling.” In English and in French and Wolof with English subtitles. Directors: Samba Gadjigo, Jason Silverman. (US/Senegal 2015) 86 min. plus discussion.
