"La Noire de..." ("Black Girl") is a 1966 film produced by Senegalese Author-Director Ousmane Sembène. The title in French means "The Black Girl of..." or "Someone's Black Girl...". "La Noire de..." is considered one of the first Sub-Saharan films by a director of African origins that made a fairly large impact on the international scene.
The protagonist, Diouana, played by Mbissine Thérèse Diop, moves from Dakar, the capital of Senegal, to the city of Antibes, on the French Riviera, to work for a wealthy French couple. Instead of the cosmopolitan lifestyle she expected, she is treated harshly by the couple.
