The first major work of Senegalese director Ousmane Sembène, this 1966 film is widely recognized as one of the founding works of African cinema. A young Senegalese woman is employed as a governess for a French family in Dakar. When offered the chance to move to France, she accepts with excitement – before discovering that her new life is not all it was made out to be. A subtle but striking examination of racial and cultural prejudice and a crucial work in the history of African and Francophone cinema.
