A blend of styles makes Dakar a cosmopolitan and unusual city. A symphony of sounds and images from the capital of Senegal.

"When I left the theatre, I looked for a subject for a film and I started to look at my city. I found it very amusing! It's strange to see how we have a Sudanese-style cathedral, a chamber of commerce that looks like a theatre and a theatre that looks like council houses!!" (D. Diop Mambéty).
