Moolaadé by Ousmane Sembène( Visual )

37 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,018 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

As numerous trial witnesses air bracing indictments against the multinational economic machinery that haunts them, life in the courtyard presses forward

Eine ergreifende Geschichte über die Unsitte der Beschneidung. In einem afrikanischen Dorf wehren sich vier junge Mädchen gegen ihre Beschneidung. Sie suchen Schutz bei Collé (Fatoumata Coulibaly), einer Frau, die ihre eigene Tochter vor der Beschneidung bewahrt hat. Als die Bewohner des Dorfes versuchen, Collé zu zwingen, sich von den Mädchen zu trennen, beruft diese sich auf einen altehrwürdigen Brauch: Das "Moolaadé" bietet einen unantastbaren Schutzraum. Selbst als dadurch die Heirat ihrer eigenen Tochter gefährdet wird, behauptet Collé ihre Stellung.... Der Film ist eine großartig in Szene gesetzte Parabel über die Tradition der Beschneidung junger Mädchen in Afrika und zeigt den mutigen Kampf einer jungen Frau gegen die aktuelle Praxis dieses unmenschlichen Rituals. Eine ergreifende Geschichte, die vom Altmeister des afrikanischen Kinos, Ousmane Sembene, in großartigen Bildern erzählt wird. "Moolaadé - Bann der Hoffnung" gewann die Auszeichnung "Un Certain Regard" beim Filmfestival in Cannes 2004 und wurde 2005 vom Verband amerikanischer Filmkritiker zum besten ausländischen Film gekürt.

Guimba un tyrant, une époque = [Guimba the Tyrant] = [Guimba, a tyrant and his era]( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in Bambara and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Told in a traditional oral presentation, Sissoko frames his film with the appearance of a griot, a traditional African storyteller who passes down the "wisdom of the ancestors," looking to the values and legends of the African past for inspiration and guidance in reconstructing well-governed, self-sufficient nations. Here the legendary past of Mali (West Africa) provides an allegory of present-day African politics as it tells the story of the downfall of Guimba the tyrant. Guimba throws his city into conflict and chaos when he allows his randy, dwarf son to reject an arranged marriage to the slim local beauty in order for him to pursue the girl's larger, married mother. The tyrant then sets his own eyes on the girl, making the situation even worse
