We are delighted to announce that Bertha DocHouse will be screening Cannes’ critic’s choice award winner Makala, from French director Emmanuel Gras, on the 1st February.
“Emmanuel Gras’ camera embraces the subject’s every move with rapt intimacy and cinematic poetry.” – Variety
This observational film follows Kabwita Kasongo, a young man from a village in the Congo who hopes to offer his family a better future. When he sets out on an exhausting, perilous journey to sell the fruit of his labour, he discovers the true value of his efforts.
