+ Film Africa LIVE! with The Shrine Synchro System ft oud maestro Yazid Fentaz
Djibril has moved from Senegal to New York in pursuit of his dream of becoming a musician. Amidst a cacophony of languages and a kinetic landscape in a Harlem that is hazy, cool and dangerous, Djibril becomes embroiled in a dangerous world: peddling for gangsters, borrowing from pimps and falling in love with a prostitute. With a refreshingly novel perspective that takes us behind the hawkers and hustlers of Canal St., this mesmerising and well-crafted thriller is a visually striking and atmospheric look inside the world of African migrants living in New York.
