Touki - Bouki (Mambèty Djibril Diop)

Le Voyage de la Hyène

Touki - Bouki | Mambèty Djibril Diop

If there is a recurring theme in African cinema, it is that of emigration: the dream of leaving, fuelled by the desperation that comes from a life without prospects. In his first feature film, Senegalese director Djibril Diop Mambety asks the right questions and refuses to accept simple answers: obsessed by a mythical elsewhere, the two protagonists draw opposite conclusions from their shared experiences. A revolutionary work that still holds up as a seminal reference in film history.
