In 1970's Vieyra often worked with Sembene Ousman, another major Senegal writer and filmmaker, whom he has recorded during the making of Ceddo, a film about the native people, for whom to accept one of the conquerors' religions would mean a reprobation of the traditional African spiritualism. A film about a film thus becomes an expression of the conflict between traditional and modern worlds, the historical argument whether the external colonisation was not replaced by an internal one.
