'The Revolution Won't Be Televised' by Rama Thiaw is one of the many films underscoring the theme of this year's festival, 'The Peoples' Revolution'. 💥 In 2012, Senegalese President Abdoulaye Wade began a highly controversial run for a third term, in violation of the nation’s constitution. Among the forces that rose up in protest was a peaceful political movement, Y’en a Marre (literally “we’re fed up”), an alliance of hip-hop artists and journalists. Rama Thiaw shadows rappers Thiat and Kilifeu, and their manager Gadiaga as they traverse Dakar to rock the youth vote.
The film screens at @mayslesdocumentarycenter this Sunday, May 21 at 7:30. A Q&A with Thiat from Y’en a Marre follows the screening.
