About Jean-Michel Kibushi Shorts Program

Year Released:
Multiple Years
Animation, Experimental

Whether animating the parable of a toad or the history of violence, Congolese animator Jean-Michel Kibushi is interested in the stories people tell one another to keep their culture alive. “From the very beginning,” he once said, “I conceived my work as a means to conserve oral storytelling, secular and popular, and “make” it known to the youngsters who frequently are displaced from their own culture.” His films critique the exploitation of children, tell the history of violence, and celebrate Congolese parables, with Kibushi drawing from a range of animation techniques to tell his stories. French language with English subtitles. (DigiBeta presentation)
