Joël Akafou’s documentary follows a group of scammers in Abidjan who lure Europeans into online relationships in order to make money from them. While their elders disapprove and instead encourage them to pursue religion, the young men justify their motives as a way of collecting European debt to former colonies. Akafou’s film raises interesting questions about the effects of colonization on younger generations in the Ivory Coast. (2017, 54 min.) FMI
