The Cameroonian film “Les Derniers prédateurs” is a fictional story of corruption, aiding an unending dictatorship. After showing the film in Cameroon, the director Richard Djif was arrested and tortured by Cameroonian security forces. He was released due to international pressure. He then fled to Germany, where he was initially denied asylum.
