  IFS Screening:

> confronted by a forty-year-old single mother who, born at the same  
> time as Senegal was gaining its independence, refuses to give into  
> the stigma of unwed motherhood and climbs the ladder of success in a  
> male dominated field.  In French and Wolof, with English subtitles.   
> Discussant:  Kodjo Adabra, Languages and Literatures
>
> IFS films are free and open to the public.
