Black Girl (12A)

Senegal/1966/65mins/12a/subs. Dir: Ousmane Sembène With: Mbissine Thérèse Diop, Anne-Marie Jelinek, Robert Fontaine

This is the tragic story of Diouana, a young Senegalese woman who finds work as a childminder for a French couple in Dakar. When the couple return to the south of France, she goes with them, dreaming of a life of luxury and fine clothes on the Côte d'Azur. However, things don't turn out as she planned.   

"A perfect short story … amazingly pure, but spiritualized"
