Superpower - Dakar Chapter

A science fiction documentary shot entirely in the Senegalese capital of Dakar, West Africa.

The African Modernist cityscape becomes a backdrop to a story emerging from the astronomical constellation of Orion, played out by famous local soap actors Nídeye Thiaba Diop and Ousseynou Bissichi as well as the Dakar based artist Hassan Ndiaye.

"By jamming multiple time streams and technical formats he stages elliptical, psychological landscapes in which fantasy and documentary become almost interchangeable." - Stuart Comer, Curator, Tate Modern.
