Africans telling their own story without the purse-strings of Hollywood
I have been immersed in Africa for the past 4 years with multiple visits to my native friends there. This film was beautiful and refreshing for me to watch. It is completely from the perspective of a native Congolese man and his friends and family. This is not Hollywood’s view/version of the DR-Congo. Also, this film employed the talents of the locals, completely new to the industry. This team did incredibly well for a first time full-length feature film.
Side note: I gave it 9/10 stars because I felt the soundtrack could have used a little more depth. I am a professionally trained musician so I naturally listen for the soundtrack. There were some parts that could have used more musical support. Though if staying true to the story of the DR-Congo, then not having typical western orchestral accompaniment is a no-brainer. However, this also limits the ability to give the usual musical support in certain scenes. Interesting dilemma to navigate.
Though as mentioned before, really a monumental first-time film for a DR-Congo team. Beautifully told and depicted. Definitely a must-see independent film.
Touching, landmark film that sets a high bar for cinema in the DRC
Having seen Heart of Africa at a festival (had some technical deficiencies, of course) and in the final release, I can say it now competes with the best of them and does so beautifully. It’s not meant to be like anything you’ve seen. It was shot completely in the DRC with the intent of showing the country for what it presently is. The filmmakers set out to create their own brand of cinema in a country that hasn’t had it in decades. The rawness and authenticity, coupled with it being based on a real person makes for an exquisite 90 minutes of entertainment. In between the light romance and heavy family feuds are some deep lessons about self worth, forgiveness, acceptance and more. I highly recommend this film to anyone who can use some more cultural intelligence and nice evening of the feels.
