Request for accreditation


Bangui, Central African Republic. At 16, Albert has just discovered the music industry. While Albert’s parents dream of higher studies for their son, and despite their protestations, Albert only dreams of being part of this fascinating new world. Along with his musician friends, Albert is young and carefree – and yet, Albert is no typical Central African teenager…he is a refugee. His parents fled Congo when he was only a toddler, and their status in Bangui remains very precarious. When Albert’s father attempts to obtain Central African nationality, things go wrong and both parents are sent to jail. At only 16, Albert finds himself burdened with the responsibility of his 4 younger siblings, and to find the money needed to free his parents. Against all odds, Albert finds an unexpected support in music.
