Equally enchanting and formidable is choreographer Faustin Linyekula, who returned to the Congo after eight years in exile. His company, Les Studios Kabako, is renowned for its forceful political message. "There's always a point where explanations are powerless," he says in the film. "Maybe that's where something can begin to happen." Don't doubt him.
