Welcome to the fifth screening of Afrofilm & Diasporic Realities!
Afrofilm is a self-organised monthly screening of films telling the lives and experiences of african and afro-descendant people from various geographical locations.
We will be showing films for us by us, which means that the screening is for a closed audience of African and Afro-descendent people.
There is a lot to know and learn from all of us and we think that films are a relevant and efficient way of making this possible.
*In Wolof and French without subtitles*
Join us for the screening of La petite Vendeuse de Soleil by Djibril Diop Mambéty to then end the evening with a discussion round to share and create knowledge about Black realities we weren’t yet familiar with and to connect with each other.
This time special: After the movie there will be a story time round, all participants are invited to share their favorite childhood stories.
La petite Vendeuse de Soleil – 1999:
A disabled Senegalese girl, Sili, decides to do a boys job and starts selling newspapers on the streets of Dakar. Sili does a great job but the boys are not happy, the story tells her battle about daring to imagine what she can be and not caring about what anyone else thinks.
Djibril Diop Mambéty was a Senegalese film director, actor, orator, composer and poet. Born to a Muslim family near Dakar, Senegal’s capital city, Mambéty was Wolof. Though he made only two feature films and five short films, they received international acclaim for their original and experimental cinematic technique and non-linear, unconventional narrative style.
The screening will take place in Wolof and French spoken languages and will be without subtitles.
This screening will take place online.
