Pierrette le personnage principal du film et le reste des personnages du film sont tous originaire de Douala-Cameroun. Les personnages vivent et se battent au quotidien avec dignité dans des conditions difficiles de vie. Aujourd’hui grâce au film ils battent avec beaucoup de confiance en eux.
Rosine Mbakam grew up in Yaoundé in a popular neighborhood that nourished her imagination as a filmmaker.I am a fiction and documentary film director and graduated from the Institut National Supérieur des Arts du Spectacle et des Techniques de Diffusion (INSAS) in Brussels in 2012. In my desire for independence, I founded Tândor Productions in 2014 with Geoffroy Cernaix. By producing my films, I seek to defend the singularity of my vision.
Help us support Mambar Pierrette to overcome her misfortunes so she can stay afloat.
The city of Douala is in trepidation for the start of the new
school year. A long line of customers come to Mambar Pierrette,
the neighbourhood dressmaker, to have their clothes ready for
imminent social events and ceremonies. More than just a sewer,
Pierrette becomes the confidant of her customers, of a generation.
But when the rain starts pouring down and threaten to flood her
workshop - one of several successive misfortunes - Pierrette will
have to stay afloat.
