Tongo Saa (Rising up at Night)

Tongo Saa (Rising up at Night)

World premiere: Berlinale 2024

Kinshasa and its inhabitants are in darkness. They wait and struggle to get access to light. Between hope, disappointment and religious faith, Tongo Saa is a subtle and fragmented portrait of a population that, despite the challenges, is sublimated by the beauty of Kinshasa's nights.
