La Noire de…

by SEMBÈNE Ousmane

la-noire-de1

Gomis Diouna works for a French family, looking after their children in France. Little more than a hired cleaner, she finds herself shunning all forms of human contact. She cannot speak French or write in her mother tongue. Even her letters have to be written and read by the French family.

Black Girl (1966) is the first feature made by a filmmaker from sub-Saharan Africa. It is based on Sembene’s eponymous short story from the short story collection Voltaïque (1962).
