SMC Senegalese Film Festival – Hyenas
November 6, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
(Drama by Djibril Diop Mambéty, 1h53 min)
Djibril Diop Mambety adapts a timeless parable of human greed into a biting satire of today’s Africa – betraying the hopes of independence for the false promises of Western materialism. A once-prosperous Senegalese village has been falling further into poverty year by year until the village’s elders are reduced to selling town possessions to pay debts. Linguère, a former resident and local beauty, now very rich, returns to this, the village of her birth. However, if Linguère has returned with the intention of sharing her millions with the village, it is only in return for an unexpected action.
