In a cluttered bedsit in Belgium, 30-year-old Delphine pours out the story of her life to her friend, and filmmaker, Rosine. Over a series of carefully composed recording sessions, Delphine discloses the details of her harsh childhood in Cameroon, the series of events that led her to pregnancy and homelessness at 13, and her career as a sex worker. A loveless marriage did not lead to a better life in Europe as she had hoped, and racism and patriarchy have remained barriers between her and her dreams as she navigates life in a new country where she is routinely reduced to her gender and skin colour. Told on her own terms, Delphine’s narrative is both dramatic and matter-of-fact. “Nobody will stop this story from being told, as long as I’m the pilot of this plane.” A fellow Cameroonian émigré, Rosine Mbakam’s intimate documentary gives veracity to Delphine’s defiant statement and allows us to bear tender witness to her testimony. -TA
