Open City Documentary Festival presents:

STRANDED IN CANTON

MÅNS MÅNSSON / 2014 / DENMARK/SWEDEN / 72″

Lebrun is a new player on the burgeoning Chinese-African trade route brokering an enormous order for Congolese presidential campaign t-shirts. But he gets stung when the order is held up in production until months after the election. Instead of returning to Kinshasa as a rich man with a bright future, he remains in limbo in Guangzhou, facing nothing but mounting debts for warehousing the useless garments. Director Måns Månsson and co-writer Hongqi Li (Winter Vacation) employ documentary elements and improvisation to create this tragi-comic tale of a man out of his depth and a long way from home, whilst also providing a wry insight into the fascinating relationship that has arisen between China and Africa.


Screening followed by Q&A with director Måns Månsson.
