Sembene!
2 Apr 2017 - 4pm & 7.30pm

In 1952, Ousmane Sembène, a dockworker in Senegal with a fifth-grade education, dreamed an impossible dream: to become the storyteller for a new Africa. Sembene!, a feature-length doc, tells the unbelievable true story of the father of African cinema, the self-taught novelist and filmmaker who fought against enormous odds, a monumental, 50 year-long battle to give African stories to Africans. Sembene! Is told through the experiences of the man who knew him best, colleague and biographer Samba Gadjigo, using rare archival footage and more than 100 hours of exclusive materials.

‘A welcome survey of the life and art of “the father of African film’The Hollywood reporter

‘The remarkable career of Senegalese filmmaker Sembène Ousmane gets an appropriate overview in this intelligent, dry doc.’Variety
