Ghetto Millionaires by Remiche, Gilles

Armed with designer jackets, shiny shoes and expensive sunglasses, the flashy Sapeurs are an uncommon sight on the Brussels streets. These men are worshipped Congolese style icons with names such as Tigana Showpiece and Papa Rolls. However, as the film progresses it becomes clear that the extraordinary Sape lifestyle can be quite stressful for the Sapeurs living in Europe. Their everyday struggles turn out to be in contrast with the high expectations of relatives and society back in Congo.
