Cameras d’Afrique: The Films of West Africa @ LACMA – 7:30PM, $5-$10, All Ages
Over 20 fiction and nonfiction films will offer students and general audiences a rare look at the wealth of cinematic talent that has emerged from West Africa in the last 50 years. Long a Francophone section of the African continent, the films generated from directors as varied as the Senegalese artists Ousmane Sembène to the Diop family–director Djibril Diop Mambéty, his composer brother Wasis and Wasis’ daughter, Mati–and Mali’s Souleymane Cissé wrestle with the cultural imperialism of Europe, while observing the traditions that shaped West Africa. Featuring appearances by directors, panels and a series of four free community screenings on the LMU campus.
