STAFF PICK

Letter From Dakar Morgan Quaintance

UK, 47 minutes 33 seconds

‘Letter from Dakar’ surveys aspects of the vibrant grass roots arts and culture scene in the Senegalese capital of Dakar, following Senegal’s 2020 election. Highlighting the difference between the openess and innovation of community run spaces versus the staid professionalism of established galleries and museums, the film offers the first critical look at the much touted Museum of Black Civilisations.

Selected by our Distribution Director, Hanan Coumal

‘As the UK general election approaches and results across Europe stir uncertainty, Morgan Quaintance’s Letter From Dakar serves as a poignant reminder that hope and change are nurtured within community spaces and grassroots movements.”
