There’s no better way to beat the late summer heat than here at the Brattle. And beginning August 12th, we’ll be screening our brand new restoration of Ousmane Sembene’s BLACK GIRL, the 1966 African classic, in honor of its 50th anniversary. Often said to be the first real African film by an African director, BLACK GIRL is rich in its characters and imagery, and we’ve compiled a list of supplemental readings to get you ready for the film—whether it be a rewatch or if you’re seeing the radical film for the very first time.
