Sembene! w/ filmmaker Samba Gadjigp

Filmmaker Samba Gadjigo will present and discuss a special screening of the acclaimed documentary about the “father of African cinema,” Ousmane Sembene (1923-2007). As Sembene’s biographer and friend, Gadjigo literally takes part in the history of the manual laborer who set out to be the storyteller for a new, independent Africa.
