We recently wrote about MERKATO, the amazing documentary project about one of the largest and oldest open-air markets in Africa. The film focuses on the differing lives of a selected group of locals with ties to the market and the ominous threat of modernization. Now's your chance to meet the filmmaker, Sosena Solomon, Thursday night at JoJo's (1518 U st NW) in Washington, DC. Solomon will be sharing a clip from the film as well as a photography installation at the event which is focused on raising funds for the completion of the project.
