Q&A with:
François Yang

25 year old Françoise and 27 year old Alexan­dre live in Lau­sanne. Out of love to his fiancée Alexan­dre sug­gests get­ting mar­ried in Françoise’s home­land, Cameroon. Prepa­ra­tions for the cer­e­mo­ny, organ­ised by an African uncle, take on exten­sive dimen­sions and lead to con­sid­er­able ten­sion between the young couple. Alexandre´s par­ents have also made the jour­ney and are torn between curios­i­ty and pre­con­cep­tions. The small family from Waadt­land are, for the first time, con­front­ed with a large African family.
