Directed by Ousmane Sembène | 1966

With Mbissine Thérèse Diop, Anne-Marie Jelinek, Robert Fontaine

 
 

Sembéne’s landmark feature debut remains one of the most searing films ever made about colonialism’s lingering legacy. With hauntingly expressive imagery, Black Girl traces the experiences of Diouana (Diop), a Senegalese housemaid who, when the family she works for brings her to France to live with them, finds herself trapped in a life of domestic servitude—a situation she refuses to accept.

Statues Also Die
Dirs. Chris Marker & Alain Resnais, 1953.
“When men have died they enter history. When statues have died they enter art.” French New Wave giants Chris Marker and Alain Resnais explore the tragic effects of colonialism via its impact on African art.
