Suffering Is a School of Wisdom
Ariane Astrid Atodji
2014 - France/République du Congo - Couleur - 72'

“Since his arrival in Cameroon forty years ago, my dad has never set foot in his native land Benin. What could have pushed him to leave without a trace, to abandon his family and the daughter he had in Benin exactly the year of his “exile” and that he never heard from anymore? I can no longer ignore the reasons. What identity? What origin? This is not just about going back to the sources, but about understanding my story… History.”
