Coming Soon: Rigobert Song Documentary

Reports say a documentary on the life of the former captain of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon will be presented at the Ecrans noirs film festival which gets underway in Yaoundé on July 15.
"Rigobert Song: On the Threshold of Death" is a loose translation of
"Rigobert Song: Aux frontieres de la mort" .
This film comes some months after Rigobert Song narrowly escaped death. The former captain of  the national football team  of Cameroon had fallen seriously ill in October last year and was flown to France on the special order of President Paul Biya.
Before official recovery, it was rumoured that Song had died.
Ecrans noirs is an annual film festival set to promote African films.

The 21st edition of the event will start on Saturday at the Yaoundé Conference Centre.
Films will be projected in Yaoundé and Douala, according to media reports.
"Rigobert Song: On the Threshold of Death" is the handiwork of Leonie Bwemba, according to Cameroon-Info.Net.
Some media outlets set to cover the event are the French channel TV5, and Canal2 International.
The event will span seven days.
The documentary is meant to portray Song as a legendary and mythical figure, reports Le quotidien de l'economie.
Rigobert Song is one of the most revered former players of the national football team of Cameroon.
He started playing for his country in 1993 and resigned in 2010.
He has begun a coaching career for the time being.
He is the uncle of Alex Song .
