Tournées 2017 – Film: Black Girl

CinéCola/Tournées 2017 presents Black Girl, the first film by Senegalese master Ousmane Sembène and the first feature produced in sub-Saharan Africa. Black Girl is the story of Diouana, an illiterate nursemaid from Dakar who follows her French employers to the Côte d’Azur with dreams of discovering France. But once in Antibes, she finds herself enslaved, trapped in the couple’s well-appointed holiday apartment and on the receiving end of their domestic frustrations. The screening takes place October 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the USC Darla Moore School of Business, Room 214. In French, with English subtitles. Free.
