COLLECTIF FAIRE-PART is an ensemble of Belgian & Congolese filmmakers. The collective wants to tell new stories about Kinshasa, about Brussels, and relations between the two. They make films, take pictures, draw comics and organise events in which dominant discourses are questioned and possible futures take shape. They work in close collaboration with DE IMAGERIE.
