Faat Kiné__ Introduction and Post-Screening Q & A



Post-screening discussion at the Walker Art Center led by Joëlle Vitiello, professor of French and Francophone Studies, Macalester College, as part of the film series Ousmane Sembene: African Stories.

Film description: A successful Dakar businesswoman and middle-aged single mother, Faat Kine still hopes to find love, despite terrible treatment by men in her life. She and her equally independent friends meet up to chuckle at their lovers’ defects in a film that “draws the audience slowly into the rhythms of another world” from the “adroit and elegant storyteller” (New York Times). 2000, 35mm, in French and Wolof with English subtitles, 118 minutes.
