Borom Sarret

This movie is not only visually stunning but is also very historical with its context and overall history. The mere fact that the movie is considered the first film that was both made in Africa and made by a Black man. Only Twenty minutes long but yet its so significant. A story about a day in the life of of a cart drive. The main character is a complex character that has a lot of layers. A first he seem overly kind to let people get a ride for free even though that he need to make mone for his family, but soon after when the man with diabled legs asks him for change he refuses and admits that he doesnt even feel bad for him. He continues the coldness when he is asked to drive a man and his dead child to its burial and leave the body on the floor and leaves.  Call it karma because immediately after he is asked to drive into the heights  where is not allowed to go. When he arrives he stoped by the local police and has his cart taken away and man who hired him to go sneaks away and never pays him. At this  point he is left with nothing and is force to walk back home. Upon his arrival his wife greets him disappointed. The movie ends with her stating that she promised that they would have dinner tonight and hands him the baby and leaves. The auidence is left to linger and think about what do that actually mean for them and what she is going to do.
