David Van Reybrouck, Raven Ruëll & Bruno Vanden Broecke / KVS

A talk given by a White Father about his work in the Congo. The suspicions we may have about this person are not misplaced. Is he, a missionary, trying to convince us that Belgian’s colonial past also had its good sides? Will he try to convert us? Following an extensive tour through Europe, this haunting monologue by David Van Reybrouck (Congo. Een geschiedenis), performed by Bruno Vanden Broecke, returns to where it all began in 2007.
