SMC Senegalese Film Festival – Madame Brouette
October 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
(Drama by Moussa Sene Absa, 1h44 min)
Focusing on the plight of poor Senegalese women, Madame Brouette follows the story of one such woman who has decided to take matters into her own hands on multiple occasions. Single mother Mati toils daily by selling various goods at a nearby market, which she transports there via a large wheelbarrow — prompting local residents to dub her “Madame Brouette.” Although Mati has sworn off men since divorcing her abusive husband, her vow toward men gets temporarily put on hold once she meets slick-talking policeman Naago and the pair begin a wild fling.
