BLACK GIRL
Dir. Ousmane Sembene 
Senegal/France, 1966, 59 mins  
Ousmane Sembène’s feature debut transforms a simple plot about a young Senegalese woman who moves to France to work for a wealthy white family and finds that life in their small apartment becomes a prison, into a complexly layered critique of the lingering colonialist mind-set of a supposedly postcolonial world. Featuring a moving central performance by M’Bissine Thérèse Diop, BLACK GIRL is a harrowing human drama as well as a radical political statement.
