Congolese Nights

© Philippe Matsas

In his novel, Tram 83, Mujila shows a war-torn African city-state where tourists, students, ex-pats and locals have only one desire: to make a fortune by exploiting the wealth of the country. As soon as night falls, they go out to get drunk in Tram 83, the only club of the city. A gold rush as cynical as it is comical.

Uncover Fiston Mwanza Mujila’s inspiration from 22 May at 12pm. Stay tuned!
