25-05-2019 12:00:00 25-05-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Xala | 5:50 pm (1974, Ousmane Sembène) The Curse. Fiftyish fat cat El Hadji Abdou Kader Beye enjoys a flourishing import business, two wives (traditional and Westernized), and a white Mercedes – and now he's appointed to the Chamber of Commerce. Time to add that third wife; but on the wedding night he fails to rise to the occasion – could he be the victim of a xala? Savagely funny satire of the new post-independence ruling class that, despite government censorship, broke Senegalese box office records and hit its targets where they lived. 35mm print courtesy BFI and Janus Films. Approx. 123 min. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=371840 Film Forum Film Forum
