In 1958, Vieyra set up a special office dedicated to filmmaking in Senegal, which, after the independence (1960), became the base of the country's cinematography. A Nation is Born is a historical portrait of Vieyra's homeland showing scenes from pre-colonial traditions, represented mainly by dance, to the exploitative European domination, to the new beginning represented by the celebration of the republic.
