Delphine's Prayers (15*)

Chronic Youth Film Festival

Still from Delphine's Prayers

Rosine Mbakam continues her exploration of diasporic Cameroonian identity in this devastating documentary of a young woman now based in Brussels.

Delphine’s Prayers is a chilling insight into how certain dynamics of power—first, between men and women, then, between coloniser and colony—persist in destroying the lives of many West African women. We hear of this destruction first-hand in an altogether unfiltered monologue from Delphine—thirty, despondent, though not yet embittered; and still with tales to tell. 

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we've will not be able to screen the pre-recorded Q&A with Director Rosine Mbakam as planned. We apologise for any inconvenience.
