Moolaadé by Ousmane Sembène( Visual )

48 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 1,045 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

Code inconnu : récit incomplet de divers voyages = Code unknown : incomplete tales of several journeys by Michael Haneke( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in French and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On a busy Paris boulevard, a youth scornfully tosses a crumpled paper bag into the outstretched hands of a beggar woman. This is the bond which, for an instant, links several very different characters: Anne (Binoche), an actress; her war photographer boyfriend Georges; his farmer father and younger brother Jean, who, contrary to his father's wishes, has no interest in inheriting the farm; Amadou, a music teacher for deaf-mute children, and his family, who originate from Africa; and Maria, a Romanian immigrant

Code inconnu : récit incomplet de divers voyages = Code unknown : an incomplete account of various journeys( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composed almost entirely of brilliantly shot, single-take vignettes focusing on characters connected to one seemingly minor incident on a Paris street, Haneke's film, with an outstanding international cast is a revelatory take on racial inequality and the failure of communication in today's increasingly diverse European landscape
La genèse = Genesis by Cheick Oumar Sissoko( Visual )

2 editions published in 1999 in Bambara and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This allegorical tale combines an accurate interpretation of the Biblical story with relevant allusions to African history and culture

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
