Safi Faye is best known as the first woman from Sub-Saharan Africa to ever direct a commercial feature film—1976’s ‘Kaddu Beykat’—but the Senegalese pioneer’s legacy and groundbreaking influence extends far beyond that landmark. In honor of Faye’s recent passing earlier this year, this conversation will bring together the directors Nuotama Bodomo, Jessica Beshir, Akosua Adoma Owusu, and Johanna Makabi, to reflect on Faye’s legacy and what it means for feminist African cinema today. The conversation will be moderated by scholar and critic Yasmina Price.
