A Tribute: Sembene


ಆಫ್ರಿಕಾದಲ್ಲಿ ಪದ್ದತಿಯಲ್ಲಿರುವ ಸ್ತ್ರೀ ಜನನಾಂಗವನ್ನು ಊನಗೊಳಿಸುವ ಕೃತ್ಯದಲ್ಲಿ ನೊಂದ ಹುಡುಗಿಯರಿಗಾಗಿ ಮಹಿಳೆಯೊಬ್ಬಳು ಆಶ್ರಯ ಕಲ್ಪಿಸುತ್ತಾಳೆ. ಆದರೆ ಆಕೆ ತನ್ನ ಹಳ್ಳಿಯನ್ನೇ ಛಿದ್ರಗೊಳಿಸುವ ಸಂಘರ್ಷ ಪ್ರಾರಂಭಿಸುತ್ತಾಳೆ...

Ousmane Sembene


Ousmane Sembène (French: [usman sɑ̃bɛn]; 18 January 1923 – 9 June 2007), often credited in the French style as Sembène Ousmane in articles and reference works, was a Senegalese film director, producer and writer. The Los Angeles Times considered him one of the greatest authors of Africa and he has often been called the “father of African film”. Descended from a Serer family through his mother from the line of Matar Sène, Ousmane Sembène was particularly drawn to Serer religious festivals especially the Tuur festival.
