DIRECTOR AND PRODUCER’S STATEMENT
The Sacred Cave is a duty of remembrance, but it is also a tool for promoting and popularizing political change. It was initiated with the aim of rekindling the flame of our consciences, enriching the collective memory and calling out to each other. In addition, it will cultivate millions of young people in search of references, landmarks and models.
(…) Indeed, the virtual absence of productions in the animation genre ranks Cameroon among the least advanced countries in the field. This innovative initiative is the beginning of a solution to this deficiency. The action thus leads to an offer, both to African and international audiences, of a production that reflects the African reality in its content.
