In Kolwezi, a town in Southern Congo, a young man works as a charcoal burner, making charcoal to sell in the town. The roads he has to travel are difficult and dangerous, but his strength and his dream of a better life help to overcome the hardships. Documentarist Emmanuel Gras accompanied this tough life with his camera, and his impressive portrait makes capitalism's exploitative cycle painfully visible. Makala
