Little Girl Who Sold the Sun (45 mins)

Sili, a crippled Senegalese girl, decides to do a boy’s job, selling newspapers on the streets of Dakar. She’s great at it, but the boys aren’t happy. Djibril Diop Mambety’s (Touki Bouki) little film is a big-hearted odyssey about daring to imagine what you can be, and to hell with what anyone else thinks.

Described by the New York Times as a "masterpiece of understated humanity" upon its release in 1999, the film was originally intended to be the second part of a trilogy entitled Tales of Ordinary People, until the untimely death of director Djibril Diop Mambety before he could complete the third film.
