We, Students!

Directed by Rafiki Fariala | CAR/France/DRC | 2022 | 83 min.

We, Students! is an insightful film that offers a poignant portrayal of the realities faced by university students in developing Central African Republic. Through a micro-sociological lens, the film illustrates the daily impact of poverty and exploitation, a direct result of the actions of selfish and corrupt individuals in positions of authority. However, themes of community, friendship and adulthood emerge. The film shares the inspiring stories of a group of dynamic students who, despite facing unforeseen circumstances such as unplanned fatherhood and illness, remain steadfast in their pursuit of a better future. Through their unwavering resilience and determination, viewers witness first-hand how these students navigate challenging situations and make difficult moral decisions in order to survive. With its honest portrayal of the struggles and triumphs, We, Students! offers a glimpse into the human experience and reminds us of the power of hope and resilience in the face of adversity.
