The title of Ousmane Sembene's 1971 Senegalese film means “God of Thunder”—the deity to whom a tribal village prays when the French colonial government commandeers the rice supply. Set during World War II, the film dramatizes the effect of European ideology on African traditions. In Diola and French with subtitles. 103 min.
