France / 2017 / 96 minutes / DCP / Color

Charcoal: nearly pure carbon made by slowly cooking wood for days to remove water and other substances. Such a simple product, yet for many in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, it is a way of life, a chance for survival. Documentarian Gras charts the life of one such man, bringing us into the painful and exhausting demands of the black gold he makes, transports (by arduous bicycle journey) and sells – a product that most of us take for granted. Cannes Film Festival Critics’ Week Grand Prize.
