NOISE THAT BRINGS MONEY
Konrad Pilot | Cameroon 2013 | 41 Min. | OmeU
On the outskirts of Maroua, in the Far North region of Cameroon, blacksmiths turn scrap iron into objects for everyday use. Car bodies become wheelbarrows, truck wheels are transformed into ploughs and smaller pieces of scrap iron end up as spoons. The film follows Abakar, who, motivated by the success of his recently invented „electric cooker“, wishes to establish the first blacksmith enterprise in the Far North Cameroon. Following Abakar at work at his workshop, at home with his family, at the meetings in offices and at the exhibitions. Noise That Brings Money presents a persistent struggle of an individual to fulfill his dreams by bringing seemingly unusable pieces of iron back to life.
