One of the crown jewels in Senegal’s rich narrative film tradition, Hyenas is Djibril Diop Mambéty’s 1994 masterpiece, an elegant, witty and tragic satire that skewers the colonial exploitation of the African continent long after liberation. A Senegalese village has fallen on bad times. The townspeople’s only hope is that an elderly former resident, Linguère, a woman “richer than the World Bank,” will return to save the village from economic despair.
