Restored with the support and the help of several intervants (The African Film Heritage Project, The Film Foundation's World Cinema, The Pan African Federation of Filmmakers, the Cineteca di Bologna, and the collaboration of the film director Med Hondo) the movie "Oh Sun" invokes an authentic revolt act. Med Hondo describes the destinies of some existences towards the experience of an African immigrant who goes to the France of the sixties leaded by the general de Gaulle to look for job. On place he must fight against the racism of the other workers, the non interest of the trade unions and the indifference of the African dignitaries who live in luxury in Paris. For making his movie the filmmaker Med Hondo has played with his freedom and should extend the shooting on two years because the actors weren't available all the time. "Oh Sun" has received the Golden Leopard at the Locarno Festival 1970 but his shooting has been forbidden in some countries for diplomatic reasons;
