Le vrai du faux

Armel Hostiou — France — 2023 — 82'

One day French filmmaker Armel Hostiou discovers he has a second Facebook account: a fake Armel who uses photos of the real him and who has many female friends, all of whom live in Kinshasa. According to the profile, fake Armel invites these women to audition for his next film, which is supposedly set in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Bewildered, the real Armel decides to travel to Kinshasa in order to look for his double himself. The residency’s manager, Peter, and Sarah, one of the artists, immediately decide to help him.
