Stranded in Canton

D: Måns Månsson | USA | 77 min | Regional Premiere

Lebrun is a new player on the burgeoning Chinese-African trade route,
brokering in Guangzhou 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 a rich man with a bright
future, he remains in limbo in Guangzhou, facing nothing but mounting debts for
warehousing the useless garments. Inspired by the success of fellow Africans on
the field and determined not to return to his farm, Lebrun develops a plan to
repurpose the t-shirts and sell them to the opposition for the 2016 election.
