Cahier Africain Film Poster

Cahier Africain

BY HEIDI SPECOGNA

It all started with a small school exercise book. Its pages were checkered with the courageous testimonies of 300 Central African women, girls and men. They reveal what Congolese mercenaries did to them in the wake of armed conflict. On their own initiative, they gathered together their testimonies in this book to record the crimes committed against them.

cahier africain is a long-term observation that begins accompanying its protagonists in 2008. But while they try to master their difficult daily lives with confidence – and while, in The Hague, the legal prosecution of crimes committed during the last war is still in progress – the next war breaks out in the Central African Republic.
