Washington, D.C. Premiere   According to a popular saying in Dakar, Senegal, “You can find anything in the world at Colobane Market.” The objects in market stalls – colorful new and used clothing, shoes, journals, watches, radios and cell phones – force the eye and imagination to travel to all corners of the globe. The film explores the imagination around Dakar’s Colobane Market and its surrounding neighborhood, considering the many ways the market is embedded in its neighborhood and the broader imagination of Dakar’s residents. Directed by Joanna Grabski.

Introduced by Karen Milbourne, Curator, National Museum of African Art.  Discussion with filmmaker Joanna Grabski follows the screening.
