S IS FOR SENEGAL: La Petite Vendeuse de Soleil, dir. Djibril Diop Mambéty, 1999.

I have not had this bittersweet feeling in my chest since I was a kid and read Soviet books about smart, enterprising kids overcoming adversity. “The Little Girl Who Sold the Sun” is the story of little Sili, a disabled girl who wants to earn money the same way as able-bodied boys do. Despite obstacles, like bullies, the police and prejudice, she is successful, and manages to help others out, too. And guess what, I now have a new favorite badass woman in a yellow dress, so move over, Beyonce. Sili has swag, she is benevolent and determined, and watching her dance to Wasis Diop’s music, command grown-up uniformed men around and never lose composure is a treat.

Mambety called this film a “hymn” to the street children. It is, indeed, a beautiful portrait of the street youth, and an uplifting parable on why being kind matters. This is my first Mambety, and I'm brokenhearted that he died during the filming. One of the two Senegal’s biggest film directors, he was being treated for cancer in Paris when the film was finished but did not make it. Happy to learn that Lissa Balera, the girl who played Sili with such sass and relish, was able to attend school with the money she made filming.

Ousmane Sembene'nin Afrika tarihi üzerine karmaşık düşüncelerini yansıtan Ceddo filminde, Afrika'daki bir devletin kralı Müslüman olmaya karar verir ancak savaşçı sınıf (ceddo) kendi inançlarını korumakta kararlıdır. Boyun eğmek zorunda bırakıldıkları dini baskılara karşı gelen bir ceddo, kralın kızını kaçırır. Kralın kızını kurtarmak için verilen bütün uğraşlar boşa çıkar ve iç savaş patlak verir. Duru, ince düşünülmüş ve söylemek istediğini doğrudan ileten film, gerekli olmayan ayrıntıları ayıklayarak yalnızca, insanların çok büyük siyasi önem taşıyan bir konuya karşı verdikleri tepkileri ya da tartışmalarını gösterir, diyalog ve rollerle de bu tutumu devam ettirir. Halka açık alanlarda bir tören havasında gerçekleştirilen konsey toplantılarının yer aldığı sahnelerde Sembene, öne sürülen fikirleri, karşı fikirleri ve birbirlerine ters gelen konuşma biçimleri ve jestler aracılığıyla birbirlerini suçlayışlarını gösterir. Sembene'nin filminde, Afrika asıllı Amerikalılar'ın yaptığı halk müziğini kullanması en cesur ve zekice düşünülmüş vurucu darbelerden biridir. Bu sayede filmin içeriğine Afrika diasporasıyla birlikte, hayvan sürüsü gibi bir araya toplanıp kızgın demirle damgalanmış ve nakledilmeyi bekleyen, kaderinde kölelik olan Afrikalı köylülerin geleceği de eklenir. Asıl hikayenin arasına bu tip sahneleri de katan Ceddo, sert diliyle çok ağır bir eleştiri getirirken olayları aydın bir bakış açısıyla sunar.

It’s tonight! @lichenolichen and I curated the screening “Wake up!” that opens the 30th Society for Animation Studies Annuel Conference.

As an actor you can be the best in the film industry by living the character you.ve been given in a particular film.
To my favourite friends and family that loves me, I know you know me to be the innocent, humble and respectful man. The answer is yes, am all the above but for the seek of my job now I can be anything you can think of just to educate, inform and entertain. Since education and information is key to a successful life I have dedicated my life to be the vessel to carry them to your door step. I can assure you there will always be the humble, respectful and innocent Asante Krobea you know but aside that there can be different characters from me just to tell a story and that character dies off just after the my role ends in the film so i will need all of your encouragement, support, advice and prayers to be the best you want me to be on your TV screens.
