Delphine’s Prayers is the story of Delphine – a young Cameroonian woman – and her life in Belgium. Through a series of confessions from Delphine, a powerful portrait emerges of a generation of women lost to the dream of a better world in Europe. Through her courage, Delphine exposes the patterns of domination that continue to oppress some African women.
This film has been nominated for the Youth Jury Award.
Delphine's Prayers will be followed by a live online Q&A with Rosine Mbakam which will be live-streamed from the cinema to Selects.
