Synopsis:
Through the life and writings of Panda Farnana, the first Congolese intellectual to have been awarded a diploma in Belgian higher education in 1909, the film proposes a reflection on the beginnings of colonialism both in Belgium and in the Congo. A totally unknown story, an atypical character astride two worlds, a destiny going against clichés and traditional ideas, a man alone against all. In a word, a magnificent occasion to rewrite history.
