SEMBENE!

a documentary film

Help us reach a $5,000 match!

It has been seven years since Jason and I decided to make this film, and we have just six weeks until our premiere ... and only five days left to reach our Kickstarter goal. Let's get our film to Sundance! 

We've received incredible support, with more than 200 of you pledging already, plus spotlights and coverage from IndieWire, Kickstarter and the Salt Lake Tribune. And there's more good news: a donor has just pledged to match every dollar pledged between now and midnight Friday, up to $5000. 

Your pledge now counts as double! If you have been thinking about pledging, but haven't gotten around to it, or if you know a friend who might pledge, please consider helping this essential film reach its audience. 

Take a look at the video that Jay Z's Life + Time, Video Magazine did on Ousmane Sembene in 2011.
