Boxing Libreville (2018)
Observes a doorman’s day-to-day life whilst an ongoing election threatens to determine his entire family’s fortunes.
Young boxer, Christ, trains relentlessly by day and works as a doorman in Libreville nightclubs at night. But Amédée Pacôme’s searching documentary debut always implies more than it reveals.
Gabon’s impending presidential election is seemingly an incidental background, reported casually on radio and TV, although its outcome will deeply govern the lives of Christ and his love ones.
