Touki Bouki

Tuesday, September 24, 2019 at 7:00pm to 8:29pm

Willard Straight Theatre
Central Campus

With a stunning mix of the surreal and the naturalistic, Djibril Diop MambŽty paints a vivid, fractured portrait of Senegal in the early 1970s. In this French New Wave-influenced fantasy-drama, two young lovers long to leave Dakar for the glamour and comforts of France, but their escape plan is beset by complications both concrete and mystical. Characterized by dazzling imagery and music, the alternately manic and meditative Touki Bouki is widely considered one of the most important African films ever made."One of the most confident debut films ever made."
