Learning from the Curse

Sembene's Xala

Richard Fardon and Senga la Rouge

A Hurst Publication

  • A distinctive and fascinating look at an African cultural icon
  • A biting satire on corruption, Xala set the standard for the new wave of African cinema. This is a dazzlingly illustrated reflection on West African cultural practices -- literary, social and visual -- and one of a kind.
