Engaging with the world
| 82 minutes | 2017
Journey through the Cameroonian jungle, where ancestral beliefs linger while the local population resists. In each of her films, Marie Voignier takes audiences into unknown territories where the colonial past mingles with current-day socioeconomic issues. For her fourth documentary, she ventures into southeastern Cameroon, where the jungle and its colourful denizens are haunted by legends from days gone by. Among the discoveries are a forgotten German cemetery, holy men and workers who are adept with a chainsaw.IN COMPÉTITION
