The Other Profile

Directed by: Armel Hostiou | France/DRC | 82 minutes.

The Other Profile by Armel Hostiou is a compelling and comedic documentary that delves into the complexities of identity and social media in the modern world. Shot in France and the Democratic Republic of Congo, the film follows Hostiou as he investigates a fake Facebook account using his name and photos to lure women in Kinshasa to audition for his next film. The film offers a unique and insightful perspective on identity, authenticity and the impact of social media on our lives. Through a blend of personal storytelling and social commentary, Hostiou explores the human desire for connection and the risks we take in pursuing these ideals in a digital age. This story is a testament to the importance of authenticity and the risks we face in a world that increasingly blurs the line between reality and digital facades. The film's unexpected conclusion also serves as a powerful reminder of the human stories that underlie our online interactions and the importance of empathy and humility in our pursuit of connection and understanding.
