This explosive war drama by director Ousmane Sembène was banned in France and censored in Senegal for its depiction of a 1944 massacre. In the dying days of the Second World War, Senegalese troops stationed outside Dakar rebel against colonial authorities in protest over poor conditions and lack of pay. This dramatic recreation of what happens next has been hailed as “a powerful indictment of colonialism.”
‘Camp de Thiaroyeis bookended by scenes of one Senegalese force deplaning, the other departing for war; only their destinations and mode of death at the hands of Europeans may differ.’ – Slant Magazine
