Black Girl

12 months ago at Nov 17 16:48
Ousmane Sembène’s first feature film is a searing indictment of the stain of colonialism, of how it continues to infect us in ways both crystal clear and subterranean. Black Girl is a brief but powerful debut feature film, and a modern classic worth discovering.   Sembène’s political fury is Spartan here. It manifests an entire country’s identity crisis in a singular story and position... read more

Description: Ousmane Sembène was one of the greatest and most groundbreaking filmmakers who ever lived, as well as the most renowned African director of the twentieth century—and yet his name still deserves to be better known in the rest of the world. He made his feature debut in 1966 with the brilliant and stirring Black Girl. Sembène, who was also an acclaimed novelist in his native Senegal, transforms a deceptively simple plot—about a young Senegalese woman who moves to France to work for a wealthy white family and finds that life in their small apartment becomes a prison, both figuratively and literally—into a complexly layered c ...

The tale concerns Diouana (Mbissine Thérèse Diop), a young Senegalese woman who finds a job with a white family as a nanny in Dakar before finding herself working as a de facto slave for them on the French Riviera. Diouana finds herself increasingly isolated, frus” read more

Naisen palkannut perhe ajattelee toimivansa oikein ja ihmettelee, kun naisella pitäisi vielä olla rahaa ja unelmiakin - olisi nyt kiitollinen että pääsee pois sieltä kamelinpaskan ääreltä tai jotain sellaista. Asetelma ei ole ihan niin yksinkertainen. Runsaasta kertojanäänestä ja
