An african movie : Xala 1975 Ousmane Sembene
  • Let's discover this amazing movie !

    Xala (pronounced [ˈxala], Wolof for "curse") is a 1975 Senegalese film directed by Ousmane Sembène. It is an adaptation of Sembène's own 1973 novel of the same name. The film depicts El Hadji, a politician in Senegal, who is cursed with crippling erectile dysfunction upon the day of his marriage to his third wife. The film satirizes the corruption in African post-independence governments couples with extreme penile failure; El Hadji's impotence symbolizes the failure of such governments to be useful at all

  • really great film! You should check out his film "Black Girl". Its on netflix, and I think it's his first film.

  • Sembene is a master for sure, thanks for posting this. I really loved 'Black Girl' too and thought 'Moolaade' (2003) was a masterpiece too.
