The first major work of Senegalese director Ousmane Sembéne, this 1966 film is widely recognised as one of the founding works of African cinema. What starts out as a deceptively simple story about a young Senegalese woman, Diouana, who works as a nanny, and whose hopes of an exciting life in France are dashed when her white employers expect her to work as their servant, transcends its premise to become an uncompromising and powerful portrait of the everlasting and tragic consequences of colonialism.
