FilmSoc Week 12: Yeelen
24 May, 2016
RC Mills Lecture Room 209
Dir. Souleymane Cissé, Mali, 1987
We're capping off the semester with a few underseen visual treats. Souleymane Cissé's Yeelen is a completely unique Malian film set in the 13th Century. A hit at Cannes in 1987, Yeelen follows a young Bambara native, Niankoro, who leaves his mother’s house on a quest for spiritual enlightenment.
Find us on Tuesday in RC Mills Lecture Room 209. We'll have pizza from 5pm and the screening will start at about 5:15pm. We'll be heading to the Forest Lodge Hotel afterwards for post-film drinks and discussion.
