About the event
A Letter from Yene, emerges from conversations with the community in the seaside town of Yene, Senegal, where Diawara lives for part of the year. The documentary unfolds as if it were a letter written to the viewer. Following encounters between fishermen, pebble collectors and himself, Diawara explores how their intersecting lives collectively and unknowingly contribute to the undermining of their shared environment.
