Kouté Vwa

Wallonia (Belgium) / Documentary

In 2012, 18-year-old Lucas was brutally killed at a birthday party in Cayenne, French Guiana, a French colonized territory close to Brazil, which is still France today. Ten years later, Yannick, his best friend exiled in France, who was seriously injured at the party, returns to French Guiana for the first time to attend a commemoration in Lucas’ honour.Around a dead man: revenge, forgiveness, anger and love. Kouté vwa is a contemporary tragedy, in which each character unfolds his or her voice and tries to remedy an impossible mourning.
