PEER GYNT

Synopsis

Loosely inspired by Henrik Ibsen’s famous theatre character Peer Gynt, this film tells the story of a young man living in a small village in the Congolese tropical rainforest. Absorbed by his own world of imagination, he finds himself trapped in a desolate environment where, apart from his mother, nobody believes in his dreams and the miracles he always talks about. When Peer Gynt disappears one day, his world of imagination seems to descend upon the village.
