Filmmakers: Renaud Barret and Florent de La Tullaye
Runtime: 86 mins

Ricky has a dream: to make Staff Benda Bilili the best band in Congo Kinshasa. Roger, a street child, more than ever wants to join these stars of the ghetto, who get around in customized tricycles. Together, they must avoid the pitfalls of the street, stay united and find the force to hope in music. Spanning five years, from the first rehearsals to their triumph at international festivals, Benda Bilili! ("beyond appearances") is the story of this dream becoming a reality.

Part of the nationwide month-long Scalarama festival.
