Like Borom Sarret, Black Girl, The Money Order, and Xala, Ousmane Sembene’s latest release is another chapter in the writer-director’s laser-sharp commentary of post-independence in Senegal. Faat Kiné brings the viewer face to face with politically, economically, and morally corrupt social fabric. Against this backdrop, Faat Kiné stands out as the most hopeful, the most restorative, and the most beautifully crafted story Ousmane Sembene has ever told about the changing roles of women in Senegalese society. In this sense, Faat Kiné could be regarded as a defining text of what feminism could mean in 21st-century Africa.
