Tall as the Baobab Tree is a narrative feature film about modernization and changing
social values in a Senegalese village. A class screening of the film may supplement a
social studies, women’s studies, or global studies curriculum. Taught in conjunction with
this guide, the film will challenge students to think critically about the role that educated
young people play in transforming a society. Discussion questions and supplementary
materials facilitate further research into related topics such as a global concept of
women’s rights and the intersection of rural and urban value systems.
