“Enfant Dit Sorcier” Music Video

“Enfant Dit Sorcier” Music Video
In 2003, Internews produced two videos to raise awareness of the plight of Congolese children accused of witchcraft. The first video was a documentary, “Enfant Dit Sorcier” (“Child Accused of Being a Witch”). This is the second video, co-funded by USAID and Search for Common Ground, that uses pop music to spread a similar message to Congolese society. It features the musicians of L’Orchestre Lachytoura, most of whom were once street children, some accused of sorcery. They perform their own song “Enfant Dit Sorcier.” Internews created and inserted a narrative drama to help illustrate the story of an innocent boy accused and discarded by his family. The song is in Lingala. Subtitles are in French.
