Screening & Discussion: Tsofa Documentary by Congolese Director Rufin Mbou Mikima, Jun. 25 2014 @ Mageuzi Space – Pawa254 Hub
Tsofa tells the story of a group of Congolese men, many of them highly qualified university graduates who were offered a 600 euro/month job by a Romanian company to go and work as taxi drivers in Bucharest, the European country’s capital.
“To Romanians, black people living in their country must be either football players or students,” Mbou Mikima notes in one of the film’s opening scenes.
He first met the group back in 2008 while working in Bucharest himself. Through the use of the men’s own photos, mobile phone images and other video material, he retraces their initial steps, hopes and expectations, where it went wrong (it did), and what happened after the return of some of them to Congo (Brazza).
