Paul Shemisi Betutua, Bayindo (2020)

In a story about traditional medicine, spirituality, and decolonisation, Bayindo takes us to Kinshasa in the DR Congo. The film dives into the heart of the animist community "Kintuadi Tuka Kongo", a group that attempts to restore the customs and the ancestral faiths destroyed by the arrival of the missionaries and colonisers.
