Homer's Music - Nebraska's Best Selection of New, Used CD's, DVD's, and LP's

Djibril Diop Mambety, a towering figure in world cinema, is best known for his two features, Touki Bouki (1973) and Hyenas (1992, re-released in a new restoration by Metrograph Pictures in 2019). Yet these two extraordinary films tell only part of the story of the director's enormous accomplishments in his too-brief life. The Little Girl Who Sold the Sun (1999) and Le Franc (1994) are masterpieces of the medium-length form, completed by Mambety in his final years. They provide us a fuller picture of the elements that define his small, but perfect, filmography a rich social vision, sly humor, and formal ingenuity. Mambety initially meant for these films to lead off a trilogy to be titled Tales of Ordinary People, but sadly lived only to complete Le Franc and The Little Girl Who Sold The Sun. Both films were restored in 2K by Waka Films in 2019 with the support of the Institut francais Cinematheque Afrique and the CNC at Eclair Laboratories from the original negative.
