Official History, Popular Memory: Reconfiguration of the African Past in the Films of Ousmane Sembene

Abstract
The last two decades in Africa have yielded a significant crop of films devoted primarily to a critical engagement with the African past as a way of coming to terms with the many crises and challenges confronting contemporary African societies. This current preoccupation with history, and its implications for the present, underlies a number of films which have been produced during these past two decades.
