Xala


This biting satire set in post-colonial Senegal follows a businessman as he marries his third wife and discovers on his wedding night he’s been struck with ‘xala’, temporary impotence. With a particular interest in the way colonialist fantasies manifest in those left after people in power exile, Sembène delivers scathing commentary on greed.
