Synopsis

As a young photographer, I inherit a trunk that contains the work of a lifetime, that of the most significant photographer of the newly independent Ivory Coast era. A fascinating story thus begins, one that will bring Paul Kodjo and I together. What we have in common is not only the love for photography, but also the fragility of an artistic life.

By accepting the trunk, I obviously realize the heavy responsibility entrusted to me by Paul Kodjo, especially since the negatives it contains are seriously damaged. A stranded heritage given as a bequest, it is a part of the history of postcolonial Ivory Coast that is threatened. Paul Kodjo, silently bitter, no longer believes in it, but I make it a personal affair, challenging myself to revive a work that is at the brink of tragedy. My commitment is justified in the love that I share for this art, with the one that I now consider to be a father. Healing one affects the other. One could say a kind of exorcism to ward off a persistent evil and demonstrate that passion is not in itself the cause of the misfortunes of those who are inhabited by it.
