Experimental doc. | hdv | color | 18'50'' | Poland / Congo (Brazzaville) | 2014
A man performs the same ritual every day: he cleans his shoes, dresses up in his shiny blue suit, wears his white gloves and grey hat, and spends his time walking around Brazzaville. His presence generates an absurd apparition in the urban chaos of the city, which reflects the imaginary produced by one of the up-most icons of pop culture.
