Vacances au pays

Le réalisateur revient le temps d'un été sur les terres de son enfance, de Yaoundé, capitale du Cameroun, jusque dans son village natal. Il nous convie à son voyage pour faire le point sur l'évolution de son pays. Où en est la modernité tant vantée dans les premières années de l'indépendance retrouvée? Par petites touches, le plus souvent humoristiques, Teno convoque les génies du mal-développement que sont l'incurie de l'administration et la corruption érigée en système. Suite

Histoires Droles et Droles de Gens

An African storyteller, humorously and kindly, talks about how some of his fellow countrymen are emulating the habits of white people and “Their stuff”.

A young boy, jump from a high tree with an open umbrella to copy the way the parachutist do in the city. A few other examples are as pathetic or comical.
