La Petite Vendeuse De Soliel
The Little Girl Who Sold The SunDownloadable Video - 1999
In this film Mambery brings us the feisty Sili Lam, a twelve year old paraplegic who becomes the first girl to sell a daily newspaper in the competitive world of young male newspaper vendors. She takes on a policeman who she accuses of shaking her down, as well as the boys who taunt her. When some boys take her newspapers and crutches, and her friend asks her "What next?", she triumphantly responds, "We continue". The scenes-moving, satiric and comic-are expertly played by non-professional actors to a score by acclaimed musician Wasis Diop (Mambety's brother).
