This event has now passed.

Sembéne!, a film by Samba Gadjigo and Jason Silverman, paints an intimate portrait of Ousmane Sembéne, often hailed as the 'Father of African cinema'. Ousmane garnered international recognition through works such as La noire de…(1966), Ceddo (1977) and Moolade (2004), and his artistic legacy continues to redefine and reshape the African narrative. Join moderator Bonsuk Awani and Professor Samba Gadjigo, co-director of Sembéne! (joining via live stream from the US), as they engage in a dialogue about the roots of identity and African and Afro-diasporic art in the modern era. Click here for tickets.
