Sembene

October 19 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

- $10

LANGSTON’s Seattle Black Film Festival presents:

SEMBENE!

In partnership with UW African Studies Department and Google and in association with SIFF

Filmmakers Dr. Samba Gadjigo and Mr. Jason Silverman in attendance for a talkback with the audience after the film.

SEMBENE! tells the unbelievable true story of the self-taught novelist and filmmaker who fought, against enormous odds, a 50-year battle to give Africans the power to tell their own stories. SEMBENE! is told through the never-before-seen archival footage and verite footage of the man who knew him best, colleague and biographer Samba Gadjigo. A true-life epic, SEMBENE! follows an ordinary man who transforms himself from a manual laborer into a fearless and often polarizing spokesman for the marginalized, becoming a hero to millions.
