La noire de...

Ousmane Sembène Senegal, 1966

ramosbarajas's rating of the film Black Girl

The film says a lot about race relations in Africa, and especially in France, one of its colonizers. Left with no option but quiet revolutions, the girl passively follows fate, allowing others to dictate over her. The film, only one hour long, is powerful and tries to dissect racist attitudes but falls short on several points.
