Les Sénégalaises et la Sénégauloise
Alice Diop
2007 - France - Couleur - 56'

Director Alice Diop was born in France of Senegalese parents. Armed with her camera, she went to spend a month filming the daily lives of the women of her family whom she had never met: Néné and her two daughters Mouille and Mame Sarr. “This is the portrait of a typical town courtyard — the stage of the lives of three Senegalese women, a mother and her two daughters. This courtyard is, in a sense, a metaphor for the Senegalese women's quarters — a closed space, exclusively feminine. In the face of the demands of daily life, some struggle and face the challenge, others “laze about” and dream of another life”.
