Senegalese director Ousmane Sembène was the first sub-Saharan African filmmaker to achieve international recognition and is widely regarded as 'the father of African cinema'. His first major work, Black Girl, is the uncompromising story of Diouana, a young Senegalese nanny whose hopes of an exciting life in France are dashed when her white employers expect her to work as their sevant.

Also included is Sembène's directional debut, the short Borom Sarret, the first ever indigenous Black African film. An allegorical tale exploring poverty and inequality, it follows the difficult life of a hard-up cart driver in Dakar.
