    Cornelius Moore informed me last fall that Sembene has never given
    permission for his films to be put on tape; hence the cost to those of us
    who use them in our classes. I rented Camp de Thiaroye and Borom Sarret for
    my introductory class and had to show each IN CLASS because of the limit on
    showings-one only. "Camp" is four reels and takes two full class periods-I
    wonder if he would be amenable to changing his position so we could use his
    work more effectively.

    PS from Steve Smith moderator - Sembene told me years ago that he never
    allows video copies of his work, in his (well-founded) fear of pirates. I
    see no reason why he should change his mind, so I doubt you'll find videos.
    Cheers, Steve
