Abstract:Colobane market in Dakar (Senegal) is characterized by the saying: 'You can find anything in the world at Colobane Market'. This documentary film explores the market in relation to its neighbourhood, the city, and the human imagination. The objects populating the stalls - used clothing, shoes, watches, radios, and cell phones - oblige the eye and the imagination, inviting visitors to speculate about the networks and histories that have brought these people and these objects together in this place. The film also explores the processes of creativity and reinvention by examining how artists use the material resources offered by the market and the neighbourhood more broadly.
