#CONGONARRATIVES FILM | Lagos: 6 prix (dont Meilleur Film Africain) pour #Félicité d'#AlainGomis aux 13e Africa Movie Academy Awards ! | 15.07.2017 // __

SYNOPSIS

Elle est “Félicité”, cette mère courage solitaire et fière qui porte à bout de bras son indépendance. Chanteuse de bar, elle se jette à corps perdu dans la jungle urbaine et sociale de #Kinshasa dans une frénétique recherche d’argent pour sauver son fils de 14 ans qui est hospitalisé suite à un accident de moto puis amputé.
Véro TSHANDA BEYA crève l’écran et transcende le rôle de Félicité. Un rôle qu’elle a décroché par hasard, elle qui vivait de “petits boulots dans l’informel” à Kinshasa.

C’est un film réalisé par le célèbre réalisateur Franco-Senegalais Alain Gomis.

#CONGONARRATIVES FILM | SYNOPSIS:

Véro Tshanda Beya Mputu plays the title character, a nightclub singer in #Kinshasa, the capital of the #DemocraticRepublicoftheCongo (a region not seen so often on the big screen). #Félicité’s life implodes when her son is involved in a nasty motorcycle accident that has left him bloodied and bedridden at a municipal hospital. In order to pay for doctors to fix his broken leg — the operation costs around $600, which is a small fortune - Felicite is forced to hit up everyone in town for money, including a mob boss... [ Filmed in Kinshasa, Senegal & Paris ]

__

Directed by Franco-Senegalese filmmaker #AlainGomes, Félicité wins the AMAA 2017 Best Film at the 13th edition of Africa Movie Academy Awards, which took place Saturday July 15, 2017 at the Expo Centre, Eko Hotela and Suites, Lagos, Nigeria.
__
__ Earlier this year, Félicité was also selected to compete for the Golden Bear in the main competition section of the 67th #BerlinInternationalFilmFestival, where it won the Jury Grand Prix award. ➡➡ ‘‘The film talks about the problems that exist, but it makes very clear that we could build something together. What we wanted to do in this film was to be optimistic, but not optimistic in a naive way but optimistic within the framework of our reality, the difficult realities that we encounter...’‘ ~ Alain Gomis, Director

AGRI BUSINESS | 🌍🌿 #DRC agriculture has the potential to uplift the people and feed the region. | 🎥 @easterncongo -

__ “Congo has vast lands both in the north and south of the equator. This means there’s a rainy season somewhere all the time. Unlike many other countries in Africa, Congo is uniquely resilient to climate change. All year round, Congo could be in full-time production,” says Alexis Bonte, Congo's representative at the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization.

And only a fraction of the country’s arable land is currently used for cultivation. There are 80 million hectares of uncultivated prime agricultural land; and Congo is home to the second biggest rainforest in the world, he says. | SOURCE: Words by journalist Didem Tali for @natgeo

IT'S ABOUT THAT TIME // - #CONGONARRATIVES "Indépendance Cha Cha" ; an adaptation was made by Belgian-Congolese #musician @Baloji, entitled #LeJourd'Après / Siku Ya Baadaye in the album #KinshasaSuccursale. “I went back to #Kinshasa because I felt this urge to do music, and wherever we were doing music, people were always talking about politics,” remembers #Baloji.

The #lyrics of the original were changed quite a bit. Now, it questioned what happened after #independence from #Belgium and suggested that nothing really changed. “Can you imagine? A country like #Congo has its first election in 2007,” says Baloji. “It’s almost like a revolution and the song talks about that. We have to accept that it’s only a small step, but we don’t have to lose the idea that we are on the right path, either.” Words: www.pri.org

#CONGONARRATIVES DID YOU KNOW | "Congo is still occupied" they say | For the past 15 years there has been a ban of concerts from prominent Congolese artists such as @ferregola_lepadre @koffiolomide_officiel @gbmpianapapacheri
@iam_werrason1 @fabregas_fab which prohibits any of them from playing in Europe and the Americas. This ban which began in London, was orchestrated by a pressure group under the umbrella of 'les combattants' (the combattants); then slowly spread across other European capitals and cities.
__

The combattants believe that artists have a duty to denounce the socio-politico & economical state of affairs in the DRC by galvanising the masses and inflluencing public opinion which they feel is not being done in order to gain international support for the plight of the Congolese people. They see music as a 'distraction' from the fight to freedom as music has historically been used by politicians in campaigns. As far as they are concerned, the Congolese people do not need to be "dancing and partying while poverty, underdevelopment and political turmoil persists" , even more so with the current administration under president Joseph Kabila. Numerous arms of combattants now exist. Has it worked? To an extent; as more Congolese in the Diaspora have been invested in Congolese politics (or paying attention to it) as a result. Some are for it, others are against it. This ban however, only applies to DR Congo-based artists and exempts artists who are based in Europe such as #awilolongomba and #Mohombi to name a few. What are your views? // VIDEO: Of protest against a schedulled @fallyipupa & @heritierwata_officiel_29 concert in France. Via @banacongo
