Lured to France as a housekeeper, a young African girl finds the world closing in on her in Ousmane Sembene’s explosive, visionary debut. Drawing visually from the French Nouvelle Vague and spiritually from the Italian neorealists, the film’s heart and soul is African. This gorgeous new restoration, courtesy of Martin Scorsese’s Film Foundation and the Cineteca di Bologna, revives a film that remains as potent and relevant today as it did 50 years ago, with its black-and-white photography immersing us in the seemingly unending fissures of race and class. The final sequence—a boy in a mask haunting a Frenchman—remains one of the most memorable in cinema history. (Senegal, 1966, 66m) Followed by Q&A with Sembene biographer Samba Gadjigo
BLACK GIRL plays as a double feature with SEMBENE! with a 15-minute intermission between shows. Available seats will be filled during the intermission. The double feature will be followed by a Q&A with Sembene biographer Samba Gadjigo.

It is a film like no other you have seen. Made in violation of every rule of film production, Paolo Cherchi Usai’s second feature is a movie-in-denial, a film that tests—protests—its own identity as a film. The canned theatre; a dream factory; a work of art in the age of mechanical reproduction—intuitions like these have been thrown at the film medium since birth. The Tin Man has no heart, generations of wizards have been telling us. PICTURE was made as if its director had been blissfully unaware of their curse. (U.S., 2015, 68m)
