France 2017 – Director: Gras Emmanuel – Original language: Congolese – Subtitles: English

Somewhere in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. A young man chops down a tree and makes charcoal, which he then transports on his bike day after day to sell in the nearest town. A minimalistic observation masterfully captured by Emmanuel Gras’ camera.
