Logline Maka is the story of Geneviéve Makaping an anthropologist who immigrated from Cameroon to Italy, but it is also a bit of our story. It tells us in many different languages ​​about multiple identities and affiliations, it makes us understand what it feels like to be black in a white society, it makes us travel to faraway places. He talks about us and talks to us about the “others”, but above all he invites us to think about what it would be like if the “others” were us.
