Resonance Spiral na Berlinale

Centrifugal movement was an expression once used to describe the tactical, situated beginnings of an anti-colonial armed struggle. In a flow of gestures and recurrences, a building is collectively imagined and constructed by the traditional community of the militant Guinea-Bissauan filmmaker Sana na N’Hada. Future is rejected to make space for what waits ahead. Intertwining local dreams and cine-kin’s visions, Resonance Spiral traverses moments at the newly erected community space in Malafo. Old plans for a videotheque are revisited for the mediateca. The women of the Satna Fai association listen to forgotten voices and rest from millennia of abuse. An informal sewing workshop, an experimental garden, a bibliotera and a pre-school are set up in the space. Adolescents voice a circle and sound self-built instruments. At the well, a discussion is staged about mud medicine. Ciné-kins undermine their own agencies and distrust neo-liberal slogans. With solidary hearts and a desire to flip verticalities into horizon lines, the collective slides through mud. Onshore. Abotcha. Na tchon. Humus, humans, humbled, humiliated by humanity.
