  • ECOvolution: How to Change the World
Synopsis André and Albert are two young Aka pygmies from Mongoumba, near the border with Congo and DRC. In spite of their financial difficulties and the stigma they face at school, André and Albert fight to study and bring themselves up to the level of other students. But they also have a dream: bring the children to school. Every afternoon, they teach their pupils from the forest, unschooled children of all ages, how to read and write. To finance their enterprise, they are betting on the next harvest of makongo(caterpillars), the Pygmies' main source of income.
