About the Film

In Brazzaville, the capital of the Republic of Congo, an invisible world governs the visible world. The apostle Medard, who claims to have healing powers that can protect people from evil spirits, struggles to heal the sick victims of bad spells. Every morning, alleged victims of sorcery line up to have the witch doctor perform rites of exorcism, but his life changes when he gets publicly accused of practicing black magic. The film was screened in the ACID Programme that was presented on the sidelines of the 72nd Cannes Film Festival.
