Arnolfini - est 1961

Underground visual artists, musicians and performers create art from nothing in Kinshasa.

In the urban jungle that is Kinshasa Democratic Republic of Congo, amid social and political chaos, an eclectic, bubbling art scene has emerged. Street art and performance captured in the lens of Renauld Barrett, documents the ingenuity, creativity, and passion that artists bring to the everyday. Taking their political messages to the streets through transforming what’s been thrown away into art, they triumph over harassment from the authorities and traditional taboo through their joyful, anarchic creations. 

Director Renauld Barrett (2019), 1 hour, 34 minutes.

Presented in association with Afrika Eye Film Festival.
