Binti

By Frederike Migom

Little Binti and her father are evicted from their squat in Belgium. Undocumented, they are forced into hiding to avoid being sent back to Congo. Bold and lively, Binti expresses herself with wit and humour on social networks. One day, she meets Elias, a little boy who could allow her to live legally in Belgium... A touching and funny film, filmed from a child’s perspective, with Belgian-Congolese rapper and artist Baloji.
