Hi Frances,

Sheila Petty has written at least two interesting articles on Safi Faye:

"(Re)Presenting the Self: Identity and Consciousness in the Feature Films
of Safi Faye," in International Women's Writing: New Landscapes of Identity,
(Eds) Anne E. Brown and Marjanne E. Gooze (Westport, CT; Greenwood Press,

"How an African Woman Can be: African Women Filmmakers Construct Women",
in Discourse, Spring 1996 (I have this article as a manuscript, but
to Sheila Petty it was supposed to be in Discourse)

Hope this helps you

Mari Maasilta

P.S. I also have the home address for Safi Faye. If you need it, you can
contact my personal email address.
