In his feature-length debut, Rafiki Fariala turns the camera on himself and his friends, capturing their everyday student life at the University of Bangui. Nestor, Aaron and Benjamin are studying economics. After lectures, they talk about the future of their home country, the Central African Republic, in front of the university or at home, but also about very immediate realities of life, such as dating and work. How do you manage to transform a system? As young people with access to education, they see themselves as the ones who will shape the country in the coming decades.


Curated by Faai-Irène Estelle Hochauer-Kpoda, VIDC Global Dialogue
