Synopsis


Chronique de la débrouille, manuel de survie au Burkina-Faso, “Eugène Gabana le Pétrolier” raconte une certaine jeunesse pauvre aujourd’hui à Ouagadougou, à travers le quotidien d’Eugène, petit “affaire man” de quartier, qui tente de se faire une vie entre petites embrouilles et grande débrouille.

Tënk's opinion


Ever since Jeanne Delafosse and Camille Plagne released La Tumultueuse Vie d'un Déflaté, the biting portrait of an ex-train driver from Burkina Faso, their follow-up film was hotly awaited. Here the filmmaker duo are seen back in full force in Ougadougou, still sending ripples, this time to depict Eugène, a young 'businessman'/troublemaker. Both films intertwine as milestones in a documentary film oeuvre that already stands out for its fictional scope.
