Hyenas by Djibril Diop Mambéty

1992 | France | 110 min

Hyenas is a satirical adaptation of Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s play The Visit. A newly wealthy woman returning to her desert village proposes a deal to the citizenry: she will give the village her fortune in exchange for the murder of the local man who, years earlier, seduced her and abandoned her with a child. Mambéty said, “My task was to identify the enemy of humankind: Money . . . I think my target is clear.”

This event is presented as part of the film series 'African Legacy: Francophone Films 1955 to 2019'.
