Vivre riche
Joël Akafou
2017 - Burkina Faso/Belgique/France - Couleur - 52'

In Abidjan, a city in undergoing social transformations, we discover an Ivorian youth who has lost its direction after the political and economic crises of recent years. We follow Rolex the Portuguese and his companions, aged fifteen to twenty-five, in their daily activities, scams and little dealings to survive. They introduce us to the crazy nights of Abidjan and to their swirling lives – sex, alcohol, fetish, and sacrifice. For them, scamming Europeans means collecting the colonial debt.
