African Apocalypse

Audio Tracks 

A young man's epic journey from Oxford, England, to Niger on the trail of a colonial killer called Captain Paul Voulet.

Even though Joseph Conrad’s legendary novella Heart of Darkness is admitted fiction, it is nothing short of reality. A British university student of Nigerian origin sets out to retrace Captain Voulet’s deadly military mission to the area of today’s Niger. At the time when Conrad’s gloomy literary vision of a white man falling victim to his megalomaniac frenzy deep in the backwoods of Africa was issued as a magazine serial story, the colonial ambitions of his country led a French officer to wreak havoc in the heart of the black continent, the consequences of which the local population is facing until this day.
