BFK | 15.05.2024 | GRATISVISNING | Mandabi (1968)
In an independent country still plagued by foreign language, politics and currency, how independent can you truly be?
In Mandabi, we meet Ibrahim Dieng, an unemployed man from Dakar. One day Ibrahim gets an unexpected remittance from a relative in Paris. However, his joy is short lived, as he realizes he has multiple obstacles in his quest to obtain his newfound riches.
Mandabi is one of many masterpieces from director Ousmane Sembène, where he unveils and interrogates both the colonial powers that left, and those who worked to uphold their influence.
