Museo de la Naturaleza y la Arqueología (MUNA)
Calle Fuente Morales
Santa Cruz de Tenerife
21:30 horas

On Thursday 8th from 21.30, as part of the Museum of Nature and Archaeology’s (MUNA) Senegalese cinema season within the MusaSenegal Senegalese Festival of Culture, the museum will screen "La pirogue” (2012), on Thursday 8th from 21:30. Admission is free until seating capacity has been reached.

A group of men set sail from a fishing region in Dakar, Senegal on pirogues with the dream of reaching Europe. After a long and sometimes deadly voyage, the boats arrive in the Canary Islands. The captain of one of the canoes, Baye Laye, knows the ocean well, and is therefore reluctant to leave. But he is unsuccessful and must take 30 men to Spain in complicated circumstances; 30 men living in close quarters is difficult, they are uncertain of whether they will survive and they do not know what future awaits them.

The exhibition is part of the MusaSenegal Senegelese Culture Festival. Find out more about its activities.
