Soleil Ô, by Med Hondo

Xcèntric, the CCCB's cinema

Med Hondo’s debut, Soleil Ô (1969), a low-budget film with a high degree of formal experimentation, revolutionary message and scathing colonial criticism, is the work of one of the most original filmmakers on the African scene and the most inapprehensible for Western critics. Screening presented by Beatriz Leal, curator of the New York African Film Festival.

Soleil Ô, Med Hondo, 1969, 16 mm, 98 min. (Spanish subtitles)
