Synopsis

A documentary about the Central Post-Office and its employees in Kinshasa, DR Congo. This relic of the colonial past has trapped its employees in a frozen timewarp from which they are planning their escape. From past to present, through the cracks in the walls, we glimpse present-day Congo. http://www.white-elephant-film.com
