Ousmane Sembène, 1923 - 2007

Ousmane Sembène On Literature & film...
Me myself, I prefer literature. But in our time, literature is a luxury."
On African Leaders...
"... the most alienated individuals I have ever seen. Our First Ladies, I call them: Duty-Free Ladies; they only use European perfumes."
On Himself...
"I don't know my life. I've travelled a lot and this is the life that I have lived, but that doesn't mean that I know myself."
"I am a man of contradictions and equivocations. I have always said I would sleep with the devil to get my films made."
