The filmmaker transforms a deceptively simple plot—about a young Senegalese woman who moves to France to work for a wealthy white family and finds that life in their small apartment becomes a prison, both figuratively and literally—into a complexly layered critique of the lingering colonialist mind-set of a supposedly postcolonial world. Black Girl is a harrowing human drama as well as a radical political statement—and one of the essential films of the 1960s.
(Ousmane Sembène, Senegal, French w/ Eng. sub, 55 min, 1966, DCP)
