Albert Schweitzer was born on January 14, 1875, in Kayserberg, Alsace, a German territory at the time, and die on September 4, 1965, in Lambaréné, Gabon, a former French colony that had gained its independence five years earlier. Bassek Ba Kobhio has always been fascinated by this character caught between two continents and who founded, for better or for worse, what we now call "relief work". This film shows us Schweitzer through African eyes. (Africultures)
