In Senegal, the name of Omar Blondin Diop is associated with an unpunished state crime. In France, he has mostly gone down in history as a Marxist activist featuring in La Chinoise, a fiction of political anticipation by Jean-Luc Godard. Today in Dakar, his brothers and friends remember him while the local youth play their own fate under the imperfect present of China-Africa.
“The film is a free take on La chinoise, a Jean-Luc Godard movie shot in 1967 in Paris. Reallocating its roles and characters fifty years later in Dakar, and updating its plot, this new version offers a meditation on the relationship between politics, justice and memory.” - Thank You & Good Night productions
