A Catholic and a Muslim die the same day. Islamic villagers claim the body of the Muslim and bury him. But they got the Catholic’s body. He was a dissident, probably for arguing against accepting foreign. Based on a true story, a drama about African religion and African pride.

Holy shit. I was just looking for this the other day! thank you!
Many many thanks for this great film from Sembene.
This film isn’t loading (won’t play). Why?
Try now, David, I added a new link. Most old uploads are not available for streaming yet I’m slowing changing every single link since they all got taken down.
Thanks for uploading. What a great film with thought-provoking themes, good acting, and excellent music. I have been to Senegal several times, including the region in which this film was made (Thies), and hope to go there again later this year.
Very interesting film to watch
