Delphine’s Prayer

Rosine Mbakam
Belgium, Cameroon
2021

Reclining on a daybed in a cluttered Brussels flat, 30-year-old Cameroonian Delphine has a lifetime of stories to tell. Oscillating between humorous and playful to staggeringly painful, she discloses the details of her harsh childhood in Cameroon; the series of events that led to her pregnancy and homelessness at 13 and 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. This intimate collaboration between Director Rosine Mbakam and her subject, Delphine is a modern-day screen test that allows things long unspoken to finally be said. Through this process, a powerful portrait emerges of a generation of women lost to the dream of a better world in Europe.
