Célio lives in Kinshasa and works hard to earn a living. He escapes the complexities of every day life by devoting himself to mathematics. With the help of an old exercise book, he comes up with his own formulas to explain the situation in Congo. In »Sinusbögen überm Kongo« (tr: Sine Curves above Congo), Jean Bofane portrays, with great imagery and wit, the attempt of a simple Congolese man to control the chaos around him and make the turbulence of the present calculable.
