Join BloomBars and Africa World Now Project with the presentation of Faat Kiné (2001, 120 min), by Ousmane Sembene.
Kiné is a single mother with two children, two ex-husbands and an assortment of friends. She is the manager of a sparkling new gas station in Dakar, but her success has been hard-earned in a male dominated society.
In FAAT KINÉ, Ousmane Sembene, the father of African cinema, pays tribute to the «everyday heroism of African women,» and provides a critical look at modern, post-colonial Senegal and the place of women in that society. (French and Wolof with English subtitles). Trailer; youtube.com/watch?v=x_eHf1eip4Y
