Summary:
In "Chef!", the director visits his ancestral village in western Cameroon to film the dedication of a monument to his relative, the local king, when he realizes that the celebration is also for President Paul Biya and his party. The film then explores, through interviews, the problems of one-man rule, from the village to the city, focussing on a variety of human rights issues. "La tête" examines the impact of an unaccountable government and economic mismanagement on the people of Yaoundé.
