About the Event
One of the treasures of African cinema, Senegalese master Djibril Diop Mambéty’s long-delayed follow-up to his canonical Touki Bouki is a hallucinatory comic story of a rich woman returning to her poor desert hometown to propose a deal to the populace: her fortune, in exchange for the death of the her child’s father. Hyenas is a film of sinister, mocking laughter, and a biting satire of post-colonial Senegal. Screening Thursday, June 9th at 8pm Suggested donation $5 Cocktail hour at 7pm!
