Mandabi: The Money Order

Loading...
"This story of a man who receives a money order and, in his attempts to cash it, encounters an intimidating barrage of Third World bureaucracy, becomes a witty, masterful portrait of an ancient civilization in the throes of change. Receiving the dubious windfall at first seems a blessing to Ibrahima Dieng, who lives with his two wives and their seven children. However, as the tale unfolds, the seemingly easy transaction threatens to destroy the traditional fabric of his life. Quickly, the whole neighborhood becomes aware of it, the wives buy provisions on credit, their parents ask for a share and people try to extort him for money - all the while, his attempts to cash the piece of paper turn futile."--Container.

Touki Bouki

Loading...
Former cowherd Mory drives a motorbike with a cow's skull on the handlebars, and he and his girlfriend Anta are riding away--from their families, their home, and their future--at least as far as Dakar. They dream of a mythic and romanticized France, and set about scavenging and hustling the funds for the steam liner to Paris. Mory finds that the West, while seductive, cannot compete with the challenges posed by Dakar and his own country. Mambety's juxtaposition of premodern, pastoral, and modern sights and sounds vividly captures the hybridity of postcolonial African society, while his story grapples with the difficulties that society faces in constructing a usable African culture.
