    Subject: Great African Films of the 1990's
    From: Aboubakar Sidiki Sanogo, The Smithsonian []

    The Smithsonian Institution through its National Museum of African Art is
    organizing a series of African films entitled "GREAT AFRICAN FILMS OF THE
    1990'S". This series will take place during the last quarter of the year
    (October-December 1998). It is organized to celebrate the enormous amount of
    talent and creativity manifest in these films and to pay tribute to some of
    the best filmmakers this century has produced. We would like to have
    certain institutions host them during their presence in the country in order
    for them to engage in a dialogue with the American public. The filmmakers
    are: Jean Pierre Bekolo( Cameroon), Fanta Nacro (Burkina Faso), Ousmane
    Sembene(Senegal), Idrissa Ouedraogo(Burkina Faso) abd Djibril Diop Mambety.
