Sembene Season

Ousmane Sembene, the father of African cinema, is one of the key directors of the 20th century and yet his works - still relevant today - remain unknown to many. Through our Sembene Film Season, we will explore his work through the new and highly acclaimed documentary Sembene!, capturing the life of this prolific filmmaker. It will be screened alongside three of Sembene's films: CeddoMoolaade and Black Girl, each of which was in itself a key and groundbreaking work of world cinema.

3 Mar, 19 Mar, 25 Mar & 2 Apr 2017 - 4pm & 7:30pm
