Film Forum’s Tribute to Ousmane Sembène

NYC’s Film Forum pays tribute to the “father of African cinema”, Senegalese film director, producer and writer Ousmane Sembène.

Sembène is a true genius who used his art to explore major issues affecting the whole African continent like poverty, illiteracy, war, female circumcision, neo-colonial exploitation and much more.

If like me you’ll miss the movies shown at the Film Forum, Netflix has a good selection of his films.

Sembène, who passed away on June 10, 2007, believed that cinema was a means of “exposing the problems confronting my people.”

Much respect to this great man!
