Abstract

Mambety's final film, La Petite vendeuse de soleil, presents the intersection of orality and literacy in a globalized Dakar while rejecting dichotomous discourses of tradition versus modernity. This essay argues that the film posits appropriation and communal redefinition of modern technologies as an important part of Africa's struggle against neo-colonial dependence.
