A Conversation about films by Paulin Vieyra, with Stéphane Vieyra, Souleymane Bachir Diagne and Mamadou Diouf
Stéphane Vieyra, son of Beninese/Senegalese filmmaker Paulin Soumanou Vieyra, joins Souleymane Bachir Diagne and Mamadou Diouf to discuss Africa on the Seine and other short documentary films made by Vieyra, considered the first sub-Saharan African film director. Their discussion will explore his films, produced between 1955 and 1981, as a key oeuvre of this period of African independence and nation-building. Four short films by Paulin Vieyra are being presented by the Columbia Maison Française online from March 14 through March 21: Africa on the Seine, L'Envers du décor, A Nation is Born, and Lamb.
