VEDA MELA 2015, LOS ANGELES (CA), NOVEMBER 7TH-8TH 2015

Veda Mela was a replica of the Bhakti fest in the Joshua Tree Desert, on a much smaller scale and more interestingly in the urban setting of Downtown Los Angeles. The festival featured Yoga workshops and sessions as well as various vendors of organic food and goods. The cozy atmosphere on the first floors of a semi-high rise building was further enhanced by a DJ who spun techno music and by the World music bands that performed. The festival was rather small but is definitely appealing to young and hip Yoga adepts as well as organic food and goods enthusiasts in the city.

Ousmane Sembène is a crucial name in the history of cinema. The first indigenous director to make films in sub–Saharan Africa, beginning in the 1960s, he is known — deservedly — as the Father of African Cinema, and yet his work is not as well known stateside as that of film pioneers from other parts of the globe. This intimate, insightful and often surprising documentary seeks to correct that. Sembène’s life story is told in admiring yet clear–eyed detail, highlighting his remarkable resourcefulness in the face of a nonexistent local film industry in his native Senegal. In Sembène’s 38–year career, he successfully made nine films, a staggeringly impressive feat given the incendiary, politically charged subjects he took on (as seen in his best–known film, 1966’s BLACK GIRL, following a Senegalese maid’s dehumanizing experience working as a maid on the glitzy French Riviera). With SEMBENE!, AFI audiences can get to know one of world cinema’s most remarkable and fascinating artists. — Beth Hanna
