Examen D'Etat (National Diploma)
Dieudo Hamadi, 2014, 90 min.
In Kisangani, a group of Congolese high school students takes matters into their own hands after their teachers demand fees to help them study for their national diploma. Together, they rent a house and prepare on their own for a moment that will define their future. With a style that is casual but precise, director Dieudo Hamadi never misses a moment in his heartrending portrait of determination, success, and disappointment.
