Likang Litom-bé

Nicolas Van Kerckhove

A painter makes the filmed portrait of a footballer friend back in Cameroon after a vain attempt to reach Europe.
Once the dream of soccer has vanished, he finds in traditional medicine and odd jobs a way to preserve his freedom and quench his thirst for discovery.
Between WhatsApp Brussels-Yaoundé exchanges, interviews in front of the camera and a dreamlike dive into nature, the film takes us unexpectedly, by linking magic and painting, into the world of those who fight against the witch’s hold on the Bassas.
