Paris Dakar Cinematography

Documentary, in the making

I did the cinematography on a documentary following the World Champion of Kick Boxing – Boubacar N’Diaye. Training in the suburbs of Paris and going back to his hometown Dakar in Senegal to fight.

It was an amazing journey, especially spending time with him and his entourage around in Dakar – visiting relatives, the Mayor and the President. I lived on the roof of his father’s house, from where I shot the footage above. It works as an teaser to fond the finishing of the film.
