A panoramic photograph taken in 1980s Zaire (today’s Congo) shows a village assembled on a grassy airstrip. “Panoramic photos,” the narrator tells us, “are made to get an overview of a special moment or place.” In this case, a family is leaving – forever. This award-winning short is the retrospective goodbye of a European boy to the African culture that raised him. Samara Chadwick
