The Harvard Film Archive, Harvard’s Film Study Center, and the McMillan-Stewart Foundation present a ten-day tribute to the life and work of the late Nigerien filmmaker Moustapha Alassane. This near-complete retrospective of Alassane's films will promote awareness and research about his work. Alassane, the posthumous recipient of the 2016 McMillan-Stewart Fellowship, made the first post-independence Nigerien film, and his subsequent works acknowledged the emergence of a modern Niger and its difficult negotiation of traditional ways in a world dominated by consumer capitalism. A full list of screenings can be found here.
