LIVING RICH

BY JOEL AKAFOU

LIVING RICH


Abidjan, Ivory Coast, a country in the throes of social change. We discover a young generation lacking role models in the wake of recent political and economic crises. We follow Rolex the Portuguese and his companions in their daily activities, as they engage in scams and informal business to survive. Aged between 15 and 25, they introduce us to the crazy nights of Abidjan and their turbulent lives, which revolve around scams, sex, alcohol, fetishism and sacrifice. For them, scamming Europeans is a way of recovering the colonial debt.
