Summary
The film follows ‘Y’en a Marre’ (‘We’re Fed Up’), a collective of rappers and journalists from Dakar’s inner city, that join forces to mobilize the Senegalese youth to revolt and register to vote Senegalese President Abdoulaye Wade out of power in the 2012 elections. By using animations over the live action footage, the dark atmosphere of the tension hanging over the city is subtly highlighted...In 2011 Senegal’s President Abdoulaye Wade declares that he will run for a third term in the elections. Knowing full well that the Consitution does not allow it. ‘Y’en a marre’ (Fed Up’) is founded that same year. Using music and door-to-door campaigns, ‘Y’en a marre’ calls upon the youth to engage politically and demonstrate against Wade’s candidacy. They also urge the youth to register and use their voting card as their democratic weapon...Y’en a marre succeeded to register 300.000 new voters, historically a record number. They have inspired young people from other West-African countries to politically engage in pacifist civil movements, to avoid the violent scenario of the ‘Arab Spring’.
