France, Burundi. 2018. 70 mins. Kinyarwanda, French with English subs.
In 2015, demonstrations against Pierre Nkurunziza’s third term bring thousands to the streets of Bujumbura. As the violence gains ground and many including his own family flee, Munyaneza picks up his camera. Eventually seeking refuge in Senegal, Munyaneza goes in search of his family, along the way encountering those who stayed and those who chose the path of exile.
