This is the trailer/teaser of my short film titled The Last Train, which has just won two awards at the Screen Power Festival in two categories: Best International Short Film and Best Music

This project is based on an academic study I conducted to demonstrate how animation as a genre can be used to portray the performance of African oral literature. It was an attempt at demonstrating the extent to which animation can be used to visualise a traditional tale while also including essential semiotic elements of the oral performance, which was captured in Sankuru district, in the central Democratic Republic of Congo, where I am from and where I conducted my field research.
