A Senegalese woman named Diouana migrates to France to work as a maid for a rich white French couple with the expectation of improving her economic prospects, but instead is treated like a slave. This film was Senegalese director Ousame Sembène’s first full-length film.

Dr. Wendy Sutherland, Associate Professor of German, Black European and Diaspora Studies, will introduce this film. The film will be available on demand after the initial screening.
