Join GlobalWE on Saturday, June 19th at 12 p.m. EST for a discussion of the movie Faat Kiné (2000), which is available here, via California Newsreel on Vimeo for a small fee.

This discussion is the third in our 2021 Movie Club series. 

Faat Kiné is a "2000 Senegalese film written and directed by Ousmane Sembène, set in present-day Dakar, Senegal. It provides a critical look at modern, post-colonial Senegal and the place of women in that society. It gives a clear glimpse into life of the Senegalaise middle-class and presents present-day Dakar in all of its contradictions of poverty and wealth, tradition and modernity." The discussion will be moderated by former GlobalWE Expo Co-Lead Louise Ruhr.

Support the GlobalWE mission while in the comfort of your home! 
Each month GlobalWE announces a new film that is widely available on platforms. We ask that you watch the film at your leisure from the comfort of your home and then join us online, on the given date, for a lively discussion. In our virtual gathering we will discuss the film, raise questions, and advance the mission of GlobalWE: the empowerment of women through education, dialogue and connection among individuals working for women's rights and freedoms worldwide. We hope to see you then!
