Event

PAPA NATIONAL OYE AND KINSHASA MBOKA TE
SATURDAY, JULY 27 @ 1PM

PAPA NATIONAL OYE/KINSHASA MBOKA TE

PAPA NATIONAL OYE
A wicked political satire about African dictators, this film tells the story of the president of a fictitious African nation who spends a sleepless night playing checkers with a pot-smoking vagabond who is claimed to be the "all-around champion". However the rules of the game entail opponents howling vulgar and foul obscenities at one another. The Champion proceeds to insult, and trounce the President. His reward - and fate - are not exactly unexpected in this hilarious send-up of living under tyranny.
Directed by Bakupa Kanyinda Balufu, 1996, 40 min, Democratic Republic of Congo, Comedy, French w/ English subtitles

KINSHASA MBOKA TE  (Kinshasa, Wicked Land)
Kinshasa mboka té This expression sums up the paradox of the Congolese capital, a place of excesses of all kinds. We want to understand this popular saying, give it a meaning. In a road movie scenario, we go from street to street in search of the locals.
Directed by Douglas Ntimasiemi, 2013, 52 min, Democratic Republic of Congo, Documentary, French w/ English Subtitles
