Game Night is a nearly perfect entertainment for adults over a certain age.
Samba Gadjigo and Jason Silverman's "Sembene!", a documentary profiling the life of acclaimed Senegalese filmmaker, Ousmane Sembene, will be screening across the country in the coming months. Widely considered the father of African cinema, Sembene passed away two months after his masterwork, "Moolaade" (2004) was screened at Ebertfest in 2007. Roger Ebert wrote that it was "the kind of film that can only be made by a director whose heart is in harmony with his mind."
