R.I.P. Ousmane Sembene

R.I.P. Ousmane Sembene

Very sad news, as Senegalese film legend Ousmane Sembene has just died, at the age 84. His body of work is some of the greatest filmmaking to come from the largest continent in the world. An often forgotten region of filmmaking talent, Sembene was one of the few voices to breakthrough into the mainstream (with his stunning and political works like Camp de Thiaroye and Moolaade). Check out A.O. Scott’s obit on the Father of African cinema.
