Summary

In the south-east of the Central African Republic, two young Pygmies, Albert and André, fight for the literacy of the children of their community. To finance their project, they do not count on state aid, nor on that of NGOs, but on the sale of their harvest of caterpillars: makongo. André and Albert are among the few in their community to study.

Screening followed by a meeting with Daniele Incalcaterra and Boris Lojkine
