An Oral Gaze: Between Bouanani and Sembene

Led by Nadir Bouhmouch and bringing together artist Touda Bouanani and filmmaker/film scholar Samba Gadjigo, this conversation situates itself at the intersection between African cinema and the popular oral arts which have sometimes inspired it. With a focus on Ousmane Sembene and Ahmed Bouanani, the discussion will revolve around how the oral arts have inspired or informed the works of African film pioneers looking to “Decolonise the Gaze.”
