Storyline

The president of Congo-Brazzaville plans to transfer the remains of 19th century pacifist explorer Pietro Savorgnan di Brazza, founder of Brazzaville, from his grave in Algiers to a multimillion dollar marble mausoleum in Congo's impoverished capital. But Brazza's Italian descent discovers the truth behind this extravagant project. Violence, corruption and skull-duggery lie at the heart of this affair as Idanna Pucci battles to defend the ideals of her ancestor and save King Makoko, the great African spiritual leader and a living descendant of Makoko Iloo I, Brazza's 'blood brother'.

Compelling. Inventive. Historic. Unnerving.

The life and afterlife of charismatic explorer Pietro Savorgnan di Brazza is told like a fairy tale, but one with violence and corruption at its heart. Illustrated with an inventive combination of photographs, paper cut outs, video and first person interviews the film juxtaposes the pacifist intentions of Brazza with that of power hungry imperialists. Years later, this same fight of good against evil is played out between King Makoko, spiritual leader of Congo-Brazzaville, and the treacherous president of that city. When the film ends, you feel your curiosity for this dark continent and about its history has only begun, only just been awakened.
