Summer Screening: "The Little Girl Who Sold The Sun"

The little girl who sold the sun

Join us to watch “The Little Girl Who Sold The Sun,” a charming 45 minute Senegalese film focussing on Sili, a girl who attempts to break into the Dakar newspaper-selling business despite having been left disabled by polio. Afterwards we will discuss African cinema, polio eradication, and disability with Kunle Olulode, Professor Paul Fine and Maria Zuurmond from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.

Kunle has a keen interest in Black History and Film and was a member of the BFI Black Star and African Odyssey seasons programming groups.
