Good Bye Mandima

Kwa heri Mandima

Directed by Robert-Jan Lacombe
Switzerland, 2010
Documentary, Short


Through home-movies discovered at my grandparents’ home in Bordeaux, I recount my childhood in Mandima, a little village in northeast Zaire, where I was born. Starting with a panoramic still of the great departure, I observe and recall those first ten years of that young boy who would have to leave.
