MOOLAADE

They say desperate situations require desperate measure, right? For one of my general elective classes, Human Geography, my group members and i have to watch the movie "Moolaade" by Ousmane Sembene. Blockbuster doesn't have it, and i've been trying to see if we can get it on Netflix. My school sent out this interlibrary loan thingie to 6 schools. All the schools have the movie but none of them is willing to lend it out. I need the movie by the end of next week latest. Do any of u guys have the movie? Have u seen it or do u know how else i can get it? Please, come to my rescue people. The Ijebu in me, doesn't want us to buy the movie 'cos it's quite expensive. I know i can count on my blog friends, so please don't let me down.

Title of movie sounds like ex's name. Anywayz, is it Afican? If it is, then you should go buy! Else, I'd say get som' b**tlegged copy..

sorry oh bijou, i thot sombody will have helped you by now.
my school is having an ousmane sembene festival and since i am outreach manager i could see about borrowing their copy and copying it for you.

its a long shot and you might have even given up by now, but since no one else has even heard of the thing, i thot i'd pitch in my two kobo.

also please kindly look over my dilemma in ur oct 6th post, post 18.thks!

Thanks guys, my partner says she found it on Netflix so we'll see if she can get it.
@Belle: my matchmaking skills are correct, are u for real? My first time tryna matchmake folks. Let's see what happens.
@BellaNaija and NB: It's not easy for me to close my eyes and buy it (lol). Besides it's a group project, so who gets to keep it after the project is over?

@Anon 2.0: Girl, thanks a bunch my dear. U're a darl. If my partner doesn't have the movie by the end of this week, i might just go with ur suggestion. What State do u go to school? I'll reply to ur dilemma now.
