“100% DAKAR – more than art” is a portrait about the creative arts scene in Dakar, Senegal. Dakar booms with live and this energy can also be found in the creative, artistic and cultural expressions of the city. Many young artists in Dakar took on the role as agents of change of their generation. “100% Dakar” visits fashion designers, Hip Hop musicians, graffiti artists, a photographer, an art blogger, dancers and many other artists and cultural entrepreneurs who stand for creativity, passion, social conscience and a collective, creative fight against all economic and political burdens in the sense of “l’union fait la force” (“unity is strength”).

The screening will be followed by an open discussion with Sandra Krampelhuber and Sista Fa as well as a small reception in the cinema foyer.

Reviews
"(...) Krampelhuber's film portrait highlights the fact that there is a special collaborative energy that has come together in the city to form Dakar's contemporary art scene. Her documentary offers a behind the scenes peek into the makings of this exciting creativity and does what photographer Omar Victor Diop hopes his art can do; it shows another image of contemporary Africa."
