In celebration of Black History Month and in partnership with the DC Host Committee, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy present the screening of the 2001 film Little Senegal by Rachid Bouchareb.
Aging Senegalese man Alloune curates a slavery museum in his home country. Spurred by the reaction of curious patrons, Alloune is inspired to find the descendants of the people brought to the United States during the slave trade. So he travels to America, eventually landing in New York and meeting up with his cab driver nephew, Hassan, Hassan’s girlfriend, Biram, and storekeeper Ida, who could be Alloune’s distant relative.
This screening by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States is made possible through the generous support from TV5 Monde.
