Public Anger

The crimes depicted in "Public Anger" are not the doing of criminals or delinquents; they are committed by ordinary citizens, by simple city and village folk, in the name of popular will. Angry crowds' lynching of alleged culprits has become a day-to-day reality in certain African countries. It is the result of the legal vacuum and failings of the public administration that characterize so many States on the continent. Taking the example of specific cases of mob justice in Benin, the film will attempt to establish a diagnosis of a legal system riddled with corruption.
