    Resumé

    This film explores the birth of a new ethnic group, the Gando. The Gando are a Fulfulde-speaking group of slave descendants that emerged politically in the context of democratic decentralisation reform.
    Today, Gando, who were once seen as a sub-group of Fulani or Baatombu/Boo people, claim they should be recognized as a new ethnic group. This challenging claim should be understood as a quest for a full-fledged citizenship.
    The film presents the testimony of a former slave. His personal trajectory is both singular and archetypical. Entrusted to Fulani people because he was suspected as infant to be a witch, he was then cured from his witchcraft and enslaved his whole childhood. In many ways his life reflects the historical process of the Gando people’s physical and economic emancipation.
