Asientos (1996)
, 52minutes
Directed by François L. Woukoache
Origin Cameroun
Genres Drama, Documentary

« Asientos » signifie « chose acquise, décidée ». C’est sous cette forme de « Asientos », ou licences, que l’Espagne du XVI siècle confiait aux négriers européens l’organisation de la traite des esclaves. Cent ans se sont écoulés depuis qu’a pris fin la déportation d’Africains vers le Nouveau monde. Le film raconte l’histoire d’un jeune Africain traumatisé par la violence qu’il voit encore aujourd’hui. Pour y échapper, il se réfugie dans l’imaginaire et se rend à l’île de Gorée. Ce voyage au cœur de la douleur et de la souffrance, à travers des lieux vides mais pourtant chargés de mémoire, est une suite de questionnements.

An African storyteller humorously and kindly talks about how some of his fellow countrymen are emulating the habits of white people and “Their stuff”. He thus presents several cases to prove his point. In one of them a supposed to be planter and businessman who underpays an employee gets framed by his own folks. A young boy jumps from a high tree with an open umbrella to copy the way the parachutists do in the city. A few other examples are as pathetic or comical. At the epilogue our storyteller finds himself being laughed at, at a bistro in Paris. The way he deals with the situation is kind and again humorous.
