    • Synopsis
    • "Sorcerer children of Kinshasa" it’s a portrait of a group of children between 9 and 12 years, all accused of witchcraft.

      Sent by their parents, to the "Revivalist churches" that swarm all over Kinshasa, they are subjected to psychological and physical torture by many unscrupulous priests in order to "cast out the demons that hide within them."

      However, once they have suffered this exorcism, they are still considered to be tainted and are then rejected by parents to end up as homeless children in the streets of Kinshasa.

      Facing a very uncertain future, music takes on the central role in their lives and acts as a cure for all their ills and misfortunes. The children in the film decide to set up a "Rap" group designed to draw them out of their dreadful situation and achieve a better level of life and recognition as being normal children. They call their group " The Devil Doesn't Exist."
