Abstract:

"Public vans provide the traditional and sole means of city transportation in Dakar, Senegal. In a frenzy of activity, from the outskirts to downtown, people from all walks of life (as well as fruits, vegetables, chickens, etc.) are transported daily in these public vans. [The film] opens a window on a slice of life in the busy urban metropolis, where drivers and trainees are always on the go, managing relationships, incidents and conflicts, dealing with the competition and providing an invaluable service to demanding yet loving customers"--Container.
