SYNOPSIS:
LIMITED TICKETS are available at UPSTATE FILMS in RHINEBECK for the Rhinebeck screening.

In the spring of 2011, Senegal was pitched into crisis when President Abdoulaye Wade decided to change the constitution to allow for a third term. An artist-led youth movement - the Y'en a Marre (Enough is Enough) -- erupted to protect one of Africa's oldest and most stable democracies. Fourteen candidates ran for president. Incorruptible follows the main players: incumbent President Wade, opposition candidate Macky Sall and music superstar Youssou Ndour, along with the Y'en a Marre movement. Displaying passion, exuberance, corruption, religious ploys, a call for accountability, collaboration, and the registration of 300,000 new voters, the results were stunning. More people voted than ever before in the history of independent Senegal. Macky Sall, running on a platform of reform and anti-corruption, won. The film explores this transition and asks: after you unite against something, what do you then unite for? With democracies around the world under siege, Incorruptible offers hope, while honestly examining the sustainability of a peoples' movement and the role youth are taking to shape the future. Inspiring!
