the promise of prison
by Joseph Dégramon Ndjom
CAMEROON, FRANCE - 2021 - 60 min
Detyr, my 46-year-old uncle and his partner Adèle, 33, exchanged a promise while they were still prisoners: that of making their life together once released. Now established in the village of Nkonga (Cameroon) where they are struggling to start a new life and a little over two years after their release, their desire to get married faces opposition from my family. While questioning this atypical love story… I film the couple in their wanderings, the Stations of the Cross that they endure to keep the promise of prison.
