Diouana (Mbissine Thérèse Diop) travels from newly independent Senegal to work for a French couple in Antibes. As her expectations about a new life are devastatingly undercut, she is driven to desperation. An unflinching portrait of post-colonial relations, Sembène’s film also explores the role of cinema in political struggle and revolution.
