Event

Congo in Harlem 7: Closing Night Celebration
Presented by Friends of the Congo and True-Walker Productions

Elephant's Dream

Kristof Bilsen, DR Congo/Belgium, 2014, 72 min.
(Lingala & French w/ English subtitles)

Elephant's Dream tells the story of a group of public sector workers who live in the third largest city in Africa, Kinshasa, DR Congo, where the weight of history has not stopped them from pursuing their hopes and dreams. The film takes us beyond the usual reports of the Congo, providing poetic and compassionate insight into a country in transition, as seen through the microcosm of three state-owned institutions: a rail station, the central post office and the only existing fire station in Kinshasa. At times surreal, at times hopeful, this film reveals a surprising perspective on lives lived beyond chaos.

Followed by Q&A with filmmaker Kristof Bilsen and reception with live music by Isaac Katalay and the Life Long Project.


This presentation is made possible in part with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts' Electronic Media and Film Presentation Funds grant program, administered by The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes.
