"(...) Krampelhuberâ??s film portrait highlights the fact that there is a special collaborative energy that has come together in the city to form Dakarâ??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."
