Spectres is a film that focuses on the researches of Sir Jacques Brasinne de la Buissière on the decolonialization process of the Belgian Congo, in particular on the conditions of the execution of the Congolese leader Patrick Lumumba in 1961. The description of facts and events gives way to a somber narrative, in which the rigidness of formats such as documentary and fiction crumble apart. Using Bach’s intense Johannes Passion as a soundtrack, Spectres is a lively portrait of a man facing his own past and beliefs.
