BADOU BOY
Mambéty | 1970 | Senegal | 56m
Showing with  CONTRAS CITY
“The Master, The Rebel, The Artist”
* Introduced by John Akomfrah

“The Senegalese filmmaker Djibril Diop Mambéty should have been on T-shirts like Che Guevara, a famous face of the western 70s zeitgeist… He was the most wildly talented filmmaker to emerge from Africa at the end of the 60s – many would say ever. Mambéty’s Touki Bouki can, in its precocious stylistic display and sonic innovation, be considered Africa’s Citizen Kane, so seeing [Badou Boy] was like discovering earlier works of Welles that reveal his style already to be fully formed … [Its] sonic complexity, its state of the nation-ness, its Joycean wandering, its allegorical fun, convinced me that Badou Boy is undisputedly a lost classic.” – Mark Cousins
