Luxembourgish Premiere
In the presence of the film crew

An intimate portrait of the first black man with Luxembourgish citizenship.

In 1912, Jacques Leurs, a small black boy, is left at his grandparents’ place in Luxembourg. His Luxembourgish father returns to Congo, the native country of his son’s mother. Jacques will never see them again and grow up as the first black citizen of this tiny European nation. His life will be marked by the 20th century’s conflicts and ideologies. His complex identity will be at the core of several severe setbacks, but it is also the source of Jacques’s sensitivity for other people’s suffering and thus becomes the driving force behind his commitment to social and political change.
