Moustapha Alassane: A Retrospective 1962–2001
The Wexner Center is proud to participate in the first-ever touring retrospective of pioneering Nigerien filmmaker Moustapha Alassane. Alassane’s career spanned four decades, and his work reflects the political climate of his time, often critiquing both European colonialism and local corruption. This series is but a sample of his diverse output, which ranged from animation and narrative films to ethnographic works and reflected the influence of such filmmakers as Jean Rouch and Norman McLaren.
Organized by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and The Museum of Modern Art in New York with support from the Cinémathèque Afrique of the Institut Français.
