Mandabi The money order ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1968 and 2005 in Wolof and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This story of a man who receives a money order and, in his attempts to cash it, encounters an intimidating barrage of Third World bureaucracy, becomes a witty, masterful portrait of an ancient civilization in the throes of change. Receiving the dubious windfall at first seems a blessing to Ibrahima Dieng, who lives with his two wives and their seven children. However, as the tale unfolds, the seemingly easy transaction threatens to destroy the traditional fabric of his life. Quickly, the whole neighborhood becomes aware of it, the wives buy provisions on credit, their parents ask for a share and people try to extort him for money - all the while, his attempts to cash the piece of paper turn futile."--Container

1 edition published in 2002 in Wolof and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A Dakar, Ibrahima Dieng, un bon musulman sénégalais, vit avec ses deux femmes et leurs enfants, tranquillement sans travail. Alors qu'il est chez le coiffeur, ses femmes recoivent un mandat d'Abdou, un neveu parti en France. Rapidement tout le quartier est au courant de l'aubaine. Les femmes achètent des provisions à crédits, des parents demandent leur part et certains essayent de lui extorquer de l'argent. Le mandat, ce morceau de papier, au lieu d'apporter richesse et reconnaissance, devient le symbole de la honte et de la déchéance. Une peinture humoristique et sans concession de la nouvelle société sénégalaise indépendante

3 editions published in 1975 in French and Undetermined and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ceddo by Ousmane Sembène ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2000 in Wolof and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Le film se situe au moment où l'islam et le christianisme pénètrent l'Afrique de l'ouest. Pour les deux religions, tous les moyens sont bons pour remplir la mosquée ou l'église: armes à feu, alcool et pacotille de toue sorte. L'islam, après avoir converti la famille royale et les grands dignitaires, se heurte au refus des 'Céddos'. Pour eux, adhérer à une religion étrangère, c'est renoncer au spiritualisme africain. Pour arriver à ses fins, l'Imam usurpe le trône et réduit les récalcitrants à l'esclavage. La princesse, incarnant tout au long du film la résistance de son peuple, tue le marabout-roi. Un film de réflexion rassemblant des faits véridiques qui s'échelonnent sur plusieurs siècles."
