The "Satan of Light" is at work amidst the corrugated iron huts of the dirty markets on the dusty streets of Kinshasa. He has two horns on his head, his face grimaces and many children anxiously flee from him. Here, documentary filmmaker Renaud Barret meets a group of fascinating artists who make art on the street and for the street. They bring sculptures, pictures, performances and interventions into the public space, far away from the world’s audiences and the art market.
