Enric Bach (2011, 51 minutes) French, Lingala, Teké with English subtitles. Genre: documentary.
Insight into the lives and style of sapeurs, magic-wielding wrestlers, political hip hop artists, and a politically engaged radio DJ in Congo. A young radio talk host, Carlos La Menace, unveils in his weekend show three figures of Congo's capital, Brazzaville. The Sapeur Yves Saint Laurent, surrounded by extreme poverty, chooses elegance as a way of life. Cheriff Bakala is not a usual rapper. Mixes hip hop with Congolese folk, and uses local instruments, such as drums made up with water cans. He's about to record his first album in a country with almost no producers. Finally, Palmas Yaya, Brazzaville's wrestling champion is relying on magic to defend its throne in a crucial moment of his life.
