Feature Film: Sembene!

Join us FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20 7PM for a feature-length screening of the multi-award-winning film Sembene! (2015) — a look at the life and career of Ousman Sembene, the first African to direct feature films. Co-directed by Jason Silverman and Mount Holyoke College professor, Samba Gadjigo, Sembene! weaves together segments of Ousman Sembene’s most famous films with dialogue between him and Samba Gadjigo to present an honest and fascinating profile of the African freedom fighter who used stories as his weapon.

Following the screening will be a post-film discussion with Samba Gadjigo about his adventures with Ousman Sembene, the father of African cinema.
