Saint Louis Blues
(Un transport en commun)

by Dyana GAYE

Transport en commun 1

So what happened to the seventh passenger? This is the question that six impatient travellers ask themselves, as well as the bush taxi driver – all in a rush to leave Dakar for Saint-Louis. They set off and, as their journey advances, their stop-offs turn their life stories into song and a shared portrait slowly takes shape.

Un transport en commun is an ambitious film made with striking sincerity and freedom, resonating with words that are politically engaged, poetic but devoid of metaphor. With a talent inherited as much from a Demy as a Diop Mambéty, Dyana Gaye brings together her characters’ imagination and the reality of Senegal’s vibrant landscapes.
