We know Aimé Césaire in Africa and in Caribbean such as the man who invented the « Negritude ». The aim is to start a new era in history, which will be truly the one of human beings, going over servitude and slavery.
We know Césaire in literary history as a companion of the surrealist revolution: André Breton didn’t call him with admiration the « Fundamental Negro » ?
And also in Martinique, everybody knows the big “small man” : he stayed next to his people to improve day after day its conditions of concrete life : during half a century, he was the attentive mayor of Fort de France and also represented his people to the French Parliament, in Paris.
This movie redraws a whole life career, dedicated to a huge literary and poetical work. But it’s also a testimony for the future: to gather the “wise” man’s words in order them to be perpetrated and transmitted like the dear Cézaire’s African oral tradition.
