About the Event:

Soleil Ô (Oh, Sun, Med Hondo, 1967)Introduced by Aboubakar Sanogo, Carleton University Cinema Revival: A Festival of Film Restoration Winter/Spring 2018 PreviewHondo’s first feature film, Soleil Ô is a searing commentary on the treatment of immigrants and France’s colonialist legacy. Based on Hondo’s own migrant experience, the drama follows a group of Africans in Paris who become disillusioned by the racism that keeps them from opportunity and instead in a series of dead-end jobs. Shot on a less-than-shoestring budget, this imaginative, criminally underseen work is stylistically in keeping with films then emerging from New Wave movements around the world. (98 mins., DCP) Presented in partnership with The Global Mobility Project at Ohio State, a Humanities & Arts Discovery Theme pilot project. For more information visit
