  • The Little Girl Who Sold the Sun

    1999. Senegal/France/Switzerland/Germany. Written and directed by Djibril Diop Mambéty. With Lissa Balera, Tayerou M'Baye. A hymn to the courage and ingenuity of street children, Mambéty's last film follows a twelve-year-old paraplegic girl who successfully muscles in on a boy's world—the selling of newspapers. In French, Wolof; English subtitles. 45 min.

  • Borom Sarret

    1963. Senegal/France. Written and directed by Ousmane Sembène. With Ly Abdoulaye and his horse Abouarah. Borom Sarret is widely recognized as Africa's first fiction film by a black African director. After Senegal achieved independence, Dakar's central quarter was closed to horse-drawn carts for sanitary reasons and for fear of traffic congestion. Some drivers, however, were not aware of this new regulation. In French; English voice-over. 20 min.
