The 2nd Africana Film Festival at Miami University (of Ohio) presents the films and legacy of Ousmane Sembène.

In addition to screening of Sembène's films, the festival "is meant to serve both as an opportunity to open up new inroads in the criticism of Ousmane Sembène’s artistic achievement and address the broader question of the place of African artistic creation in the broader context of European and American post-war movements," according to Dr. Babacar Camara, the festival's director.

Also included will be 3 critical roundtable discussions on of Sembène’s filmmaking.

A must-attend even for you folks in Miami, Ohio; especially if you're not familiar with the master's works.
