Through a blend of documentary and cinema, we are invited to enter the world of Congo’s cultural and natural heritage under the wing of Danièle Sassou Nguesso, born in Dakar. An aesthetic and poetic voyage across the wonders of her motherland; visiting Congo’s famous ‘sapeurs’, wrestlers, musicians and of course, its youth, striking the miserabilist depiction of Africa’s countries down in one sublime cinematic revelation of its human and landscape beauty.
