Scholars from the US, Canada, France, and Senegal will discuss the legacy of Paulin Soumanou Vieyra (1925-1987), who was born in Benin and spent most of his adult life in Senegal. Director of over 30 documentaries, Vieyra was also a founding member of the Fédération panafricaine des cinéastes, director of the national cinema news service of Senegal under president Léopold Sédar Senghor and production manager for Ousmane Sembène.
