Movie Info

This short work is the first film of Senegalese director, Ousmane Sembene, one of the founding filmmakers of African cinema. The film follows the daily routine of a horse-cart driver. Along his way, he encounters an unfortunate array of characters who embody the economic woes of the impoverished people. Sembene may not have possessed the means to produce a film of the caliber of his later works, but he already possessed the socially critical voice. ~ Jonathan E. Laxamana, Rovi

Stark, satiric 'Borom Sarret' was the first-ever indigenous black African film.

Sembene's early short film encapsulates everything that is angry, witty, pellucid, and healthily, uncynically skeptical about his cinema.
