Appearance by Stefani Saintonge

 
Black Girl

Dir. Ousmane Sembène
With Mbissine Thérèse Diop, Anne-Marie Jelinek, Robert Fontaine
1966, 59min, DCP

 

Ousmane Sembéne’s landmark feature debut follows the fortunes of Diouana, a Senegalese housemaid brought to France by the white family she works for. Once there, she finds herself isolated and trapped in a life of domestic servitude—a situation the dignified Diouana refuses to accept. The first African film to receive international acclaim is one of the most trenchant films ever made about race and a devastating indictment of colonialism’s legacy.

 
Fannie's Film

Dir. Fronza Woods
1979, 15min, Digital

 

As a cleaning woman goes about her job, voiceover narration makes us privy to inner thoughts, hopes, and feelings—a quietly revolutionary challenge to received stereotypes about women of color who earn their living as domestic workers.

 
 
 
Fucked Like a Star

Dir. Stefani Saintonge
2018, 8min

 

The words of Toni Morrison are set to a poetic meditation on women’s work and the dreamlife of ants.
