The film screening of Sembéne highlighted the controversial life, work, legacy and difficulties the “Father of African Cinema” faced as an artist, in a world that wasn’t receptive of creative works for African audiences. Ousmane Sembéne is the first African film director to achieve international recognition and this special night ended with an engaging talk with the film’s Director Samba Gadjigo, that celebrated why his legacy lives on.
