Like everywhere else in the world, gays and lesbians in Cameroon seek refuge in the city. In this country, homosexual relations are subject to punishment of up to five years in prison, and it is almost impossible to come out to your own family. The filmmakers’ unobtrusive proximity to their protagonists has yielded conversations in which their interlocutors discuss their longing for a love life they are forbidden to have.
Directed by Shaun Kadlec and Deb Tullmann. USA. 2013. 82 min. French and English with English subtitles.
