In search of Sembne
Abstract:This visual essay begins at the National Homage to Ousmane Sembne in Dakar, Senegal in July 2008 and follows my search to find out whether Sembne's work is accessible to the Dakar public. From conference rooms, to museums, to market stalls and living rooms, I explore what has happened to Sembne's work in the city he made his home, and thereby raise questions about the future of African film-makers and African audiences.
