Ça Twiste À Poponguine, Rocking Poponguine, (Senegal; 1993) Directed by Moussa Sene Absa, French with English subtitles.

In the weeks before Christmas, 1964, two groups of Senegalese teenagers square off: the Ins, who attend school, have adopted the names of French pop stars, while the Kings, who are fishermen, prefer to imitate African American R & B legends. Their rivalry is portrayed through the eyes of a young orphan boy who serves as a messenger for the teenagers.

Presented by Barbara Cooper, Department of History.
