Algeria | 2015 | cartoon | 90 min | French

Six episodes, six different stories, six countries (Cameroon, Burkina, Congo, Mali, Benin, Algeria).

This mosaic of tales gives us a panorama of traditional African stories through the wise old Papa Nzenu who tells his stories to passers-by. It is a tribute to the culture and wisdom of the peoples of Africa.
