National Diploma

directed by Dieudo Hamadi, France/Democratic Republic of Congo 2014, 92' (English friendly)

  • Dieudo Hamadi this time, examines his homeland through the prism of its education system. Up close, observing a group of high-school graduates preparing for the title diploma, which is treated as an entry pass to a career, Hamadi mercilessly, though with humor, exposes pervasive corruption, the incredible co-existence of science and folk magic, the inertia of state institutions and the endemic poverty, blocking the path to development. The title exam turns out to be a ritual of absurd colonial providence, and despite the light tone, and ecstatic ending, the films conclusions are hardly optimistic.
