Madame Brouette

Ongoing

35mm print. With Rokhaya Niang. A woman, known as Mrs. Wheelbarrow because of her fruit and vegetable cart, has killed her husband. The story is told in reverse: A man enters her house; seconds later, he comes out staggering and collapses. He was hopelessly drunk and dressed as a woman; we learn more as the story unfolds. More than a murder story, it is a profound look at Senegalese society, about women’s fate and struggle to survive, crafted with Absa’s signature use of lush color, theatrical settings, and song.

Free with Museum admission.
