The Spirits & Black Lioness


In the year 2050, an asteroid-shaped deity (mysterious luminary) named Apophis (Apophyses) crashes to earth, causing an unprecedented climatic deregulation. 95% of the water is absorbed, the fauna and flora totally ravaged, cities destroyed, monstrous and mystical beings unleashed on the surface of the whole earth, it’s chaos… In this post-apocalyptic world, the survivors and the most hardened have built kingdoms and fortified cities around the rare water resources. Among these kingdoms, the Kongo Kingdom is one of the most powerful and flourishing, founded around two pillars: Technology, held by the Mpazu clan, and Kongo spirituality, held by the NSAKU clan whose totem is Bastet. However, the kingship of the kingdom is entrusted to the Nzinga clan, which is considered neutral for the good balance.Despite the harmony within the kingdom, it has suffered from ideological tensions for decades between spirituality and science.

We, People of the Islands


Five friends reunite in the middle of Santiago Island’s countryside, in Cape Verde. Following Julio’s invitation, former PAIGC (African Party for the Independence of Guinea and Cape Verde) guerrillas, Tutu, Silvino, Pedro Pires, and Agnelo get together for the first time after decades and reminisce over the greatest utopian adventure of their lives: Operation Cuba. Organized by Amílcar Cabral, to train them in the military in Cuba and return to Cape Verde to free the country from the grips of colonialism. Through their recollections, we navigate between past and present. Immersing themselves in memories, our protagonists reflect in a fun and sincere way on the victories, defeats, and disappointments of their independence process. They wonder about the future of Cape Verde and Africa in an increasingly fragile world.
