Mambar Pierrette

Quinzaine 2023 | Feature film | 93 min | Belgium, Cameroon
World premiere

A seamstress in Douala, Pierrette raises her children alone and looks after her mother. She is used to living hand to mouth, but she still has to navigate the odd pickpocket and the flooding of her house and workshop. Pierrette stiches together cloth, holding together the film and the fabric of her life, while her clients offload to her about their problems. A fiction built largely from documentary material, Mambar Pierrette is admirably straightforward and without pathos. It is a reflection of its leading actress: valiant, discreet and above all resilient.
