Ousmane Sembene (1923 - 2007)

Damn... I was so ready this morning to just survey the blogosphere and chuckle at the irate reactions to the Sopranos finale when this news smacked me in the face.

This is sad news for African cinema, for real.

R.I.P.

Judging from his artistic legacy of books, material on celluloid and numerous essays we can see that the man lived a full life creatively...so we will miss him but his time came...we should only wish for other African artists to look for inspiration from his prodigious output..
