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!
