Badou Boy (1970)


A sarcastic look at Senegal’s capital that followed the adventures of what the director described as a “somewhat immoral street urchin who is very much like myself”. The contest pits the non-conformist individual against an absurdly caricatured policeman who pursues the protagonist through comedically improbable scenarios. Badou Boy celebrates an urban subculture while parodying the state.

Director: Djibril Diop Mambéty.
Stars: Lamine Bâ, Al Demba Ciss, Christoph Colomb, Aziz Diop Mambety.
