Rate this:
Pirogue: A group of 30 men and a woman sail to Europe in a pirogue, facing the sea - and the possibility of never reaching their destination, in exchange for the myth of a better life in Europe.
Colobane express: Public vans provide the traditional and sole means of city transportation in Dakar, Senegal. In a frenzy of activity, from the outskirts to downtown, people from all walks of life as well as fruits, vegetables, chickens, etc. are transported daily in these public vans.
Silent monologue: In a voice-over, we hear the thoughts of Amy, a girl from a rural area of Senegal who works as a domestic for a well-to-do family in Dakar. It is a film that goes beyond the slogan Africa for Africans to promote the notion of a better Africa for all Africans.
