'Black Girl' (1966) review

To immerse yourself in Ousmane Sembene’s 1966 film, 'Black Girl' (La Noire de…) is to time-travel to ground zero of African Cinema. Sembene’s extremely lean but layered first feature film was the first by sub-Saharan African, earning him the mantle of the "father of African film".
