FULL DESCRIPTION

The Revolution Won t Be Televised is a smart and insightful documentary that sheds light on political resistance in Senegal. Despite the slight irony in the title, Thiaw's decision to use Gil Scott-Heron's lyrics as the motto for her film stands strong. When Black Africa's revolution begins, it will not attract the cameras of the Arab Spring - it will have come from within the hearts and minds of the people. Told from the perspective of three artist-activists who take the lead of a nationwide movement against their self-proclaimed 'president-for-life', the film shows how millions of Senegalese took to the streets for democracy.
