Cultural domination, modern slavery, the female condition - Sembène explored these themes which came to represent, film after film, the struggle to which he would dedicate his life. "Thanks to Sembene, the Black Continent has at last a say in the history of the moviemaking world"- Georges Sadoul. Black Girl was awarded the Prix Jean Vigo on its release.
Preceded by Sembène’s magnificent debut Borom Sarret (1963, 23m)
