BFK | 08.05.2024 | Le Spectre de Boko Haram (2023)

Over the past decade, Boko Haram has carried out attacks on the villages and residents of the Far North Region of Cameroon. For those who reside there, the persistent threat of violence has become a part of daily life in the region. Cyrielle Raingou, a native of the Far North Region herself, delicately observes her young protagonists, enabling them to express their experiences and perceptions of their environment through their own words and actions.

The instruments of warfare have become ubiquitous, as the children get ready for school, distant gunshots echo through the air. The lives of these children offer an unique exploration of the dichotomies within a conflict zone: the juxtaposition of hope and despair, innocence and terrorism, and the forceful erosion of traditional culture and a dying vernacular. Through Le spectre de Boko Haram, Raingou focuses on capturing the innocence of child's play, illustrating a resilience that transcends war.
