(1970, DCP, 98m) dir Med Hondo w/Robert Liensol, Théo Légitimus, Ambroise M’Bia. A bitterly funny, stylistically explosive attack on Western capitalism and colonialism, Soleil Ô follows a starry-eyed immigrant as he leaves West Africa for Paris in search of a job and cultural enrichment. He soon discovers a hostile society in which his very presence elicits fear and resentment. Hondo deploys an array of narrative and stylistic techniques—animation, docudrama, dream sequences, musical numbers, folklore, slapstick comedy, agitprop—to create a landmark of political cinema. $10
