Senegal Tribute

  Saint Louis Blues/Un transport en commun

The bush taxi is the most common form of transport in Senegal. On one of these long car journeys, eight passengers meet and provide the voices for this unusual musical.

We are taken on a cross-country trip through Senegal, from Dakar to Saint Louis, in a battered taxi. Touching upon themes such as destiny and fate, this film presents an interesting plot told in a particular cinematic manner that makes the viewer want to travel and discover.

“A song for their lives and the situation in their country.”
