About the Film:

Ousmane Sembène, the most internationally renowned African director of the twentieth century, made his feature debut in 1966 with the brilliant and stirring Black Girl. A complex, layered critique on the lingering colonialist mindset of a supposedly postcolonial world. Black Girl is a harrowing human drama as well as a radical political statement—and one of the essential films of the 1960s.

Followed by a panel discussion.
