FILTER: FINANCE AND ITS LOGICS
Angola faces major social and political tensions. Many residents live under the poverty line and dream of a future in America or Brazil. In Cambeck Voitures we see four boys imagining themselves touring around the world in a limousine. They transcend reality, if only for a moment. Their conversation about the imagined future is funny and touching, until you realize that it is based on total hopelessness. Also in light of the present refugee crisis, their dialogue is painfully current: the four boys are all determined to trade their impoverished existence for ‘the good life’ in Brazil, in America, in Italy.
