The Films of Ousmane Sembène: Discourse, Politics, and Culture by Amadou Fofana

Ousmane Sembène was a Senegalese film director, producer, and writer whom the Los Angeles Times considered one of the greatest authors of Africa. Often called the "father of African film," Sembène strongly believed that African films should be geared primarily toward educating the masses. This study examines the artistry of Sembène’s films and interprets the meaning conveyed by images through their placement and function within the films. It also contributes new insights into Sembène’s interpretations of cultural practices and the meanings he ascribes to social behaviors.
