‘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.
