Bonjour Douala

Original title : Bonjour Douala

Directed by : José Ramо́n Bas

Bonjour Douala (2022) is an animation by José Ramо́n Bas, selected in the “Competition Prix SAUVAGE CORTO” section of the 19th edition of the Paris European Film Festival, Europe by Europe.

Synopsis :

A dive into the bustling port city of Douala, Cameroon, punctuated by the passage of motorcycles and the playful activities of children. Pedestrians gradually blend in with the graffiti on the walls, and the entire city seems to metamorphose into a strange creature…



“Each negative is for him a path to infinite possibilities.”
Christian Caujoll

“José Ramо́n Bas devotes the first shot of his film to the agitation of the adult world and makes it almost foreign to us. It is to better unfold subsequently, in counterpoint, on the walls of Douala, a free and impertinent childish imagination, made of monsters, games and animals, and which occupies more and more space.
Ziguy Leoni, Europe by Europe
