ITEM#: 3660112

Fans rocked by the subject matter of 2004's MOOLAADE will be delighted to discover that this earlier effort from director Ousmane Sembene touches on similarly controversial subject matter. A low budget effort from 1966, Sembene's film is a tautly wound drama that follows a woman from his native Senegal as she finds work with a white French family in the Senegalese city of Dakar. Despite hiring her for other purposes, she finds herself relegated to the position of a lowly maid when she agrees to follow the family to their native France; her life heads into a downward spiral as she feels alienated and cruelly alone in her adopted country. Sembene deftly illustrates the appalling racism and lack of respect afforded to African citizens in Europe during this era, concocting a deeply affecting movie in the process.
