On October 16, the film Kaay Fi was shown at Suffolk University as part of the Celebrate Senegal program. Zapo, the director of the film was in residence at Suffolk University under the Collection of African American Literature’s Writer’s Forum. Her residency was a compliment to the Distinguished Visiting Scholar residency of the Faye family, and the film Kaay Fi which was shown for the first time in the United States has the Faye family as a focus. The following clips from that film will give those who were unable to attend the opportunity to experience the film and the Géwël tradition. Enjoy!
