Storyline



©
Drama chronicling the political and religious squabbling within an African kingdom, where the conflict between followers of Christianity, Islam and the kingdom`s own religion is exacerbated by the kidnapping of the king`s daughter.
Sembene`s most ambitious film, uses the story of a beautiful princess`s kidnapping to examine the confrontation between opposing cultural forces: Muslim expansion, Christianity, and the slave trade. The "Ceddo" - or feudal class of common people - cling desperately to their customs and their fetishistic religion amidst the impending changes. Nominally set in the nineteenth century, Ceddo ranges far and wide to include philosophy, fantasy, militant politics, and a couple of electrifying leaps across the centuries to evoke the whole of the African experience.
