13 Feb 2017 Ousmane Unchained: Now That’s Accurate
During my first 3 to 4 months in Senegal, the only movie I possessed was Django Unchained. I have watched Django countless of times to the point where it is singed into my brain. One afternoon, I purchased a slingshot at the local market that arrives every Sunday. Most of my free afternoons consisted of target practice with the rubble from an old hut. The boys in my village began to join me in competiton to see who could aim for the hole from the furthest distance. This is when I noticed the connection to one of my favorite scenes in Django. In this scene, King Schultz stated that Django would become the fastest gun in the south as he practiced his shot on a snowman in the forest. So I created a scene similar to this in my family’s front yard.
