Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso: Three countries on one line, which form something like a main axis of the film in sub-Saharan Africa. Here we open a window on Senegal, which became independent in 1960 and produced the first great author of its own cinema in the person of the writer Ousmane Sembène, who filmed his own short stories. In 1963 he shot his first film, "Barom Sarret", which we are showing here as a bonus to one of his key works: "La Noire de...". This opened the way for other authors, among whom Djibril Diop Mambéty stood out (Touki Bouki and the Dürrenmatt adaptation Hyènes). In 2019 his niece Mati Diop won the Grand Prix in Cannes with "Atlantique".
