In one of the poorest nations on earth, the Central African Republic, native sand diver Thomas Boa and construction manager Jianmin Luan, a Chinese national, accept that struggle and risk are the price of tomorrow’s rest and reward: both are prepared to “Eat Bitter.” The eye-opening documentary raises the age-old question of what we are prepared to sacrifice for a better tomorrow, without a promise that it will ever arrive. Directed by Pascale Appora-Gnekindy and Ningyi Sun. Produced by Mathieu Faure.
One of the only films to ever have been submitted to the Oscars® in the history of the Central African Republic.
