A charming Senegalese short film focussing on Sili, a paraplegic girl who attempts to break into the Dakar newspaper-selling business.
In The Little Girl who Sold the Sun, Mambety brings us the feisty Sili Lam, a twelve year old paraplegic who becomes the first girl to sell a daily newspaper in the competitive world of young male newspaper vendors. She takes on a policeman whom she accuses of shaking her down as well as the boys who taunt her. When some boys take her newspapers and crutches, and her friend asks her “What next?” she triumphantly responds, “We continue”. The scenes - moving, satiric and comic, are expertly played by non-professional actors to a score by acclaimed musician Wasis Diop (Mambety”s brother).
Showing every hour, on the hour, from 5PM to 9PM.
