In 2019, filmmakers Paul Shemisi and Nizar Saleh travelled from Kinshasa to Frankfurt for a screening of their new film. During a stopover in Angola, they were stopped at the airport because the airline didn’t trust their papers. In this short film, the testimony from the filmmakers provides an insight into the impossibility for Congolese artists to travel trouble-free and in safety.
