Made in Senegal and Paris by the master Ousmane Sembène, this comedic fable is a completely unique work of film art. When a pompous patriarch receives a money order from a relative in France, he begins throwing his weight around even before the money order is cashed, which proves to be a much less simple matter than he imagined. Full of the color and light of Senegal’s streets, homes and gathering places, MANDABI is one of those restorations that seems to bring a film fully back to life again, and we are grateful. Newly restored.
