Moolaadé by Ousmane Sembène( Visual )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the village of Djerisso, women tend to their work and children, while men debate in the mosque and make the rules. One day, four little girls appear on Collé's doorstep seeking sanctuary from their coming 'purification' ceremony. Years ago, Collé refused to allow her daughter to undergo the procedure. She takes them in and declares a moolaadé, a protective spirit, or safe zone that will bring a terrible curse upon anyone who breaks it. Thus begins a standoff that escalates into a bloody showdown between tradition and modernization, men and women, and progress and stagnation. Confronting the village elders and red-robed priestesses who perform the ritual, Collé has eyes saddened by experience, but made righteously fiery with the hope that she can reduce the misery of future generations. At 81, Mr. Sembene has made a masterpiece, both a critique of traditional forms of authority and a celebration of the warmth and dynamism of African village life

Sembene! : the inspiring story of the father of African cinema( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in Multiple languages and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1952, Ousmane Sembéne, a dockworker and fifth-grade dropout from Senegal, began dreaming an impossible dream: to become the storyteller for a new Africa. SEMBENE! tells the unbelievable true story of the "father of African cinema," the self-taught novelist and filmmaker who fought, against enormous odds, a monumental, 50-year-long battle to give African stories to Africans. SEMBENE! is told through the experiences of the man who knew him best, colleague and biographer Samba Gadjigo, using rare archival footage and more than 100 hours of exclusive materials. A true-life epic, SEMBENE! follows an ordinary man who transforms himself into a fearless spokesperson for the marginalized, becoming a hero to millions. After a startling fall from grace, can Sembéne reinvent himself once more?" -- Container

A partir de cet acte inaugural de création, l'homme va devenir écrivain et cinéaste : c'est Sembene Ousmane. Il va se forger, à la force du poignet, une place de choix dans le monde des arts et des lettres, en publiant une dizaine de romans et en réalisant une dizaine de films. Une œuvre passionnante et complexe, tournée vers des problèmes sociaux, moraux ou historiques (l'analphabétisme, les mécanismes de domination coloniale, religieuse, entre hommes et femmes, dans le monde du travail...). Sembene Ousmane est décédé au mois de juin 2007, il emporte avec lui son mystère en tant qu'homme, mais son œuvre demeure.
