A documentary film “Rigobert Song: On the Frontiers of Death” will no longer be aired at the closing ceremony of the 21st edition of the Black Screen Festival on Saturday. The film that was produced by Léonie Bwemba has been replaced.
Cameroon Intelligence Report understands the organizers are not settled on what item to bring in. But what we do know is that the announcement not to broadcast the Rigobert Song documentary was made on July the 21st, some 24 hours to the closing ceremony of the Black Screens festival.
While no details concerning the cancellation of this film were given by the Organizing Committee of the Black Screens, an official who requested anonymity suggested that there were major disagreements between the delegate general of the Bassek festival Ba Kobhio and director Léonie Bwemba.
The film “Rigobert Song: On the Frontiers of Death” traces the medical scenarios of the player after his stroke in October 2016, the care that surrounded the ex-captain of the indomitable Lions as well as his convalescence and recovery process.
The ex-captain of the indomitable Lions presented himself in a moving interview, in which he spoke about his family, the Cameroonian and French doctors who had contributed to his recovery.
