Join BloomBars and TransAfrica as we celebrate March Women’s History Month with the presentation of Faat Kiné (2001, 120 min), by Ousmane Sembene.
Date: March 25, 2014, 7:00 - 9:00PM
Venue: BloomBars, 3222 11th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20010
Kiné (pronounced KEE-neh) is a single mother with two children, two ex-husbands and an assortment of friends. She is the manager of a sparkling new gas station in Dakar, but her success has been hard-earned in a male dominated society.
In FAAT KINÉ, Ousmane Sembene, the father of African cinema, pays tribute to the "everyday heroism of African women," and provides a critical look at modern, post-colonial Senegal and the place of women in that society.
