In 1966, his seminal work Black Girl (La Noire de…) premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and ushered in the era of contemporary African cinema.

The 23rd edition of the New York African Film Festival launches with a special, interactive town hall event on Sunday, May 1st at 2:00pm with the Digital Diaspora Family Reunion Roadshow, a powerful program that helps bridge perceived differences between people and transforms strangers into family.
