Black Girl

A heartbreaking film by Senegalese writer/director Ousmane Sembene.
Released in 1966, some have considered this to be the first sub-Saharan film, complete with rarely seen sights and sounds of Dakar in the ’60’s. The film follows Diouana, a young Senegalese woman, as she travels from Dakar to the French Riviera and as Diouana’s occupation with her white mistress changes from governess to maid.
