Faat Kiné (2001, 120 min), by Ousmane Sembene. Kiné (pronounced KEE-neh) is a single mother with two children, two ex-husbands and an assortment of friends. She is the manager of a sparkling new gas station in Dakar, but her success has been hard-earned in a male dominated society. In Faat Kiné, Ousmane Sembene, the father of African cinema, pays tribute to the "everyday heroism of African women," and provides a critical look at modern, post-colonial Senegal and the place of women in that society. (French and Wolof with English subtitles).

After the screening, there will be a Q&A discussion, moderated by Mwiza Munthali – the Public Outreach Director of TransAfrica - the oldest and largest African American human rights and social justice advocacy organization promoting diversity and equity in the foreign policy arena and justice for the African World - and the radio host of “Africa Now” on WPFW 89.3FM.
