THE MBONGUI

In Congo-Brazzaville, the term "bantu" is used to designate a group of people. In the Bantu culture, the word holds a main place, it is a vital force. The Bantu loves to tell, explain and show his story. An open-mindedness that facilitates enrichment by listening and learning from others. The mbongui is the gathering place of the village elders. It can be a campfire, a large square in the center of the village, in the shade of a large tree, often a hundred years old... The elders organize councils, meetings during which they discuss the problems of the village. It is a place of listening, exchange and sharing.
Around the mbongui, during the festival, you can have fun while discovering the selected films.
