The importance of being elegant

Tonight at 20:00 in the Trouw building in Amsterdam the movie runs 'the importance of being elegant'. Thanks to Thomas from the African hiphop foundation. About the Sapeurs, you've probably heard of them already. The Sapeurs adhere to a subculture of high fashion, often against a backdrop of extreme poverty. Many live in shacks bordered by stinking sewers in the southern suburbs of Brazzaville. Those of them who can work double jobs; those who can’t must beg, borrow and occasionally steal; whatever it takes to strut in Versace, Prada and Gucci. Meet the Sapeurs of Congo.We will definitely be on the spot. Only 2,50, so let's support!
