Columbite Tantalite: a short film by Chiwetel Ejiofor

The latest in a series of short feature collaborations between the Young Vic and the Guardian, this short film is written and directed by Chiwetel Ejiofor. It’s a postcolonial parable about the west’s hunger for African mineral wealth, and about Congo’s struggle to come to terms with its past – a contemporary response to Aimé Césaire’s A Season in the Congo, which played at the Young Vic theatre earlier in 2013.
