Join us for a screening of Camp De Thiaroye presented by Sembène – The Film & Art Festival.

Camp De Thiaroye is a true story that was hidden by the French colonial regime until this film. In 1944, after defeating the Nazis and liberating Paris in World War II, a group of African soldiers – from all over West Africa – report to a transit camp near Dakar. Many of the soldiers were prisoners of war of the Germans following the fall of France in 1940.
