Caribbean filmmaker Sarah Maldoror has produced many documentaries, but she is most recognized for the films she made in Africa, particularly her fictional feature length film Sambizanga (1972), a profile of a woman who faces colonial oppression head-on after her husband is imprisoned for his revolutionary activities. This film won the grand prize at the Carthage Film Festival. Many of her films focus upon the struggles for liberation of African people since 1971. She began her training at the Moscow film school. There she met Senegalese director Ousmane Sembene. Her first documentary, Monagambee (1969), examined the techniques of torture used by the French in the Algerian war; it won several awards. While she has primarilly worked in Africa, she also continues to work in the Caribbean. In 1987, she released Aime Cesaire, le masque des mots, a profile of the poet and writer who founded 'negritude,' a literary, artistic, and cultural movement.
